Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals Organizes Special Programme On The Occasion Of World Heart Day, 2016
Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata, pioneer of cutting-edge healthcare solutions in Eastern India, was the official partner for the advanced live arthroscopic (minimally invasive) surgery workshops of IASCON 2016. A team of highly qualified orthopaedic surgeons, both from the hospital and from across the country, performed over 20 difficult corrections of joint problems and complications at the hospitals' state-of-the-art operation theatres.
IASCON 2016, the 15th Annual Congress of the Indian Arthroscopy Society, is being hosted in Kolkata from 29 September to 02 October, 2016. Attended by over 700 delegates from Australia, Japan, South Korea, France, Netherlands, and the SAARC nations, the four day meet focused on highlighting the latest advancements in the field of minimally invasive joint repairs - covering the ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow and wrist joints.
The live workshops, coordinated by Dr Abheek Kar, Orthopaedic Surgeon, Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata, constituted an integral part of the experience sharing that was the bedrock of the meet, besides serving as an excellent platform of learning and skill development. The assembled doctors gathered significant expertise on the minimally invasive approach to the correction of complaints for all joints in the human body, and were exposed to the utilization of newer techniques like the smallest camera to be used in a keyhole surgery (arthroscopy).
Dr Rupali Basu, President and CEO ER, Apollo Hospitals Group, India, observed, "Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata, is well known for its clinical excellence and expertise that delivers best-in-class treatment for all kinds of joint problems.
