Pelvic Fractures

2 Day Practical Course

9th and 10th September 2024, Studley, Warwickshire

“Extremely enjoyable and very worthwhile CPD, learnt a lot during the two days. Strongly recommend this course”

Deciding on the best form of treatment and the surgical repair of the resulting injuries can be challenging in pelvic trauma.

In many cases you may have to deal with the patient yourself where referral to a more experienced surgeon is not an option on financial grounds. This course is specifically designed to help you to become more proficient in decision-making and in the surgical treatment of some of the most commonly seen injuries of this region.

How to assess your patient and prioritise treatment

The assessment of patients with pelvic fractures is challenging, as often they will be recumbent and it is difficult to appreciate if they are simply reluctant to ambulate or unable to do so. Of primary importance is the neurological assessment.
