Mr Aslam Mohammed visits the Arthrex Training Centre in Munich on 12.12.2012 to set up Hip and Knee Arthroscopy cadaver training programmes in the UK in the future.
Mr Aslam Mohammed has been invited to speak at the Sports and Musculoskeletal Medicine Symposium on Monday 10 October 2011 at The Homerton University Hospital. He will be talking on femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI), its diagnosis and treatment. He will speak of his experience of using Hip Arthroscopy (keyhole surgery) to treat this condition rather than open surgery. He has been performing Hip Arthroscopy procedures since the mid 1990's when he developed instrumentation to access and operate on the hip joint with keyhole surgery.
Mr Aslam Mohammed will be a member of the faculty teaching Specialist Surgeons how to perform Hip Arthroscopy and specific procedure to treat various pathologies. This is running on 23-25 November 2011. This will be at the Smith and Nephew Surgical Skills Centre in York, which is a purpose built facility to allow training of future surgeons and training in new techniques in Orthopaedic surgery.
Mr Aslam Mohammed is a member of the faculty on many of these cadaver courses and has developed the technique of Arthroscopic Ligamentum teres reconstruction in the hip joint. He has taught this technique at the "Extreme Hip Arthroscopy Course" at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle upon Tyne.
He regularly has visiting surgeons to learn the technique and observe the management of complex pathologies at his places of work (Wrightington Hospital for Joint Disease, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals and Euxton Hall Hospital).
Mr Aslam Mohammed will be attending the Current Concepts Meeting in Florida USA. This is held in December and it presents the up-to-date knowledge in Orthopaedics from leading experts in their fields. He will be going as a delegate to pick up new information and techniques that can be utilised in his practice.
He will also be attending the meeting held by Exactech in Gainesville, Florida visiting the factory facilities and the cadaver laboratory which gives hands on experience for Surgeons to practice new techniques.
Mr Aslam Mohammed for the last 3 years has been using the anterior approach to the hip joint for replacing the hip for patients with hip arthritis. This is one of the techniques promoted by Exactech and he will be discussing this with the design engineers.This approach allows for a more rapid recovery and less pain as there is no cutting of muscle, only separation of the muscles down to the joint capsule.
