SESI National Shoulder Meet 2021 | 2nd Chennai Advanced Shoulder Course
The SESI (Shoulder and Elbow Society of India) National Shoulder Meet 2021 and 2nd Chennai Advanced Shoulder Course was hosted in MGM Healthcare on Saturday, 4th December 2021. The event proved to be an incredible success, with 10 eminent international faculty joining the conference online and 30 national faculty members physically attending in Chennai, all sharing their varied experience and academic insights. The conference was attended by over 200 delegates, of whom a 100 were allowed to be physically present at the venue due to COVID-19 SOP compliance.
Dr Ram Chidambaram, Director of Shoulder, Elbow, Hand and Sports Injury at MGM Healthcare, Chennai, served as Chairman of the event. The conference was inaugurated in the presence of Dr Ashish Babhulkar (Founder-President SESI), Dr Jitendra Maheshwari (Former President, SESI), Dr Vivek Pandey (Secretary, SESI), Mr Harish Manian (CEO, MGM Healthcare) and Dr Anand Mohan Pai (DMS, MGM Healthcare). The theme of the conference was 'What's new in shoulder surgery?'. All current updates and cutting-edge technology in the field of shoulder surgery were discussed in the meeting.
Ram Chidambaram says that although shoulder problems affect people in all age groups, there is very little awareness about the nature and treatment of such problems amongst the common public. Many technological advancements have been made in shoulder arthroscopy (keyhole surgery), shoulder joint replacement and fracture fixation techniques. Dr Ram therefore considers it imperative to equip the younger generation of orthopaedic surgeons with the necessary skills and knowledge to help patients with shoulder problems achieve a painless recovery and return to pre-injury status.
