Mr Gleeson and Mr Barksfield opened their continuing professional development account for 2019 with a trip to work with Prof Argenson at the Hospital Sainte Marguerite in Marseille. This is a University Hospital performing over 1300 joint replacements per year. The French operating theatre set up was fantastically efficient with Prof Argenson running 4 theatres simultaneously allowing us to maximize our learning in a short visit.
The team at GKC are always seeking out opportunities to learn about the latest techniques and innovations in order to improve the outcomes for our patients. We are hugely grateful to Zimmer Biomet for arranging this academic visit allowing us to learn about the brand new Persona total knee replacement system and to also gain invaluable experience with trabecular metal cones.
