About this event

  • Date and time Wed 8 Dec 2021 from 5:30pm to 9:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by History of Medicine Society

Join us to identify a range of factors that led to the development of the orthopaedic specialty. In this meeting, we will discuss key individuals and events that were able to be innovative and assess their contributions both within and beyond the hospital.

This session will consist of five talks outlining the history of Middlesex Hospital's Orthopaedic Department. The learning points are the contributions made by Bankart and Wiles to orthopaedic surgery which will be of interest to orthopaedic surgeons, medical historians, and other healthcare practitioners.

During this session, you'll be able to:

  • Analyse the contributions of the surgical staff at The Middlesex Hospital especially in the areas of total joint replacement and shoulder surgery
  • Identify ways the surgical specialization developed during this period
  • Review the issues specialism creates with particular reference to patient

There is a limited number of places available for this in-person event. You can now live stream this meeting from anywhere. Click here to book the live stream.
