This week Peter Kempshall attended the Tim Spalding Fellows alumni at the FA’s prestigious St George’s Park training facility. This was part of the Sports Knee 2019 conference where sports knee surgeons share and discuss the latest evidence and surgical techniques.
One of the highlights for Mr Kempshall was discussing with Dr Rob Leprade from the USA over coffee the merits of the double bundle PCL reconstruction and the improved functional outcome with this technique. Catching up with colleague Dr Alan Getgood from from the Fowler Kennedy Sports medicine unit, Canada was another highlight. Dr Getgood trained together with Mr Kempshall in Coventry, Uk. He now runs the multi centre stability study of Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction combined with lateral extra articular tenodesis to reduce rates of re-rupture. Mr Kempshall was able to share his experience having been performing the additional procedure on ACL patients for some time.
