Non-operative treatment of Hip, Knee and Back Pain #GPWebinar @NOHCOrthopaedic
The National Orthopaedic Hospital Cappagh (NOHC) GP Webinar Series Speakers:

Hip Pain in the Young Adult.
Mr James Cashman, M.B. BCh B.A.O, M.D. FRCS (Tr&Orth), Consultant Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgeon.
Hip conditions affect patients from birth to old age and treatments vary from non-surgical to surgical options. Mr Cashman will discuss a range of hip conditions, their management and outcomes for patients of different ages.

The Arthritic Knee and non-surgical advances.
Prof John O’Byrne FRCSI, FRCS (Orth), FFSEM, FFSEM (UK), MCh., Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Abraham Colles Professor in Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery in the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
Total knee replacement is one of the commonest surgical procedures carried out worldwide. It has overtaken the number of total hip replacements carried out yearly in The National Orthopaedic Hospital Cappagh. However, one of the key elements to successful outcome following total knee replacement is to have exhausted all conservative measures prior to scheduling knee arthroplasty. This talk outlines the current non-surgical methods that are used to prolong the lifespan of the patients’ native knee prior to having total knee replacement, and describes some of the new technologies and biologics that are used.

What to do about back pain?'
Mr Keith Synnott, FRCSI (Tr&Orth), Consultant Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgeon.
Back pain is a very common presentation and while it is usually non-specific and self-limiting it can cause a great deal of anxiety for patients and clinicians. Early reassurance and a consistent message gives patients the confidence to engage in appropriate rehabilitation. This relies on an awareness of when a presentation might reflect an underlying issue that may require more intensive investigation or treatment. This talk aims to give the perspective of a spine surgeon as to what clinical and radiological findings are likely to be significant so a decision on appropriate next steps.
