Overview and questions from the online course 

Before jumping straight into the practical aspect of this surgical workshop, you may have some questions that weren't answered during your online course. It could be that you also have some questions resulting from your recent learnings.

The opening session of this workshop allows you to interact with the lecturer to have any outstanding queries or questions answered

Sawbone Demonstration

Once you're happy that you have a full understanding of the procedure and have had all outstanding queries answered, now is the time to see the procedure done live.

The speaker will perform the saw bone surgery in front of you and talk you through all the steps of the surgery before you undertake the saw bone and cadaver surgery yourself

Sawbone Practical

Now is the time for you to pick up the power tools yourself.

Working in small groups, you will perform the surgery yourself on anatomically correct sawbones relating to each procedure.

By working in small groups it allows you to learn from other participants.

The models and implants are yours to take away after the workshop - an ideal way to demonstrate to procedure to potential patient owners

Cadaver Practical

After lunch it's time to head into the surgical area.

With a range of cadaver sizes, you will firstly watch a demonstration of how to perform the surgery.

Then it's over to you!

Working in pairs, you will take it in turns to perform the surgery on not just one, but two cadavers, giving you the ultimate practical experience.

With the instructor on hand to always offer advice, we want you to leave the training course full of confidence to perform the surgery back at your own practice

Virtual Reality Session

If attending the MMP course, now is the time to step into a virtual surgery!

This incredible new technology actually takes you into surgical theatre where you can undertake some of the steps required to perform the surgery.

This truly incredible technology is an industry first.

Following on from the course, there will be various options available to hire and use the VR system
