“Advances in orthopaedic surgery and medicine have given a new lease of life to sports persons in the country, W.I. Dawaram, president of Tamil Nadu Athletic Association, said here on Friday.
Speaking at the second Indo-US Shoulder Conference, organised by Ortho One Orthopaedic Speciality Centre, Mr. Dawaram pointed out that sports injuries had crushed the dreams of aspiring athletes, forcing them out of action for months and even early retirement.
But the availability of orthopaedic surgeons to treat knee, back and shoulder injuries had brought back athletes to achieve new heights in their career and contribute to sports excellence in the country.
The three-day shoulder rehabilitation course for surgeons, physiotherapists and sports trainers would have sessions in demonstrating specific rehabilitation for instability, cuff pathologies and stiff shoulder and advances in sports shoulder rehabilitation.
A live surgical and video demonstration of shoulder surgeries performed at the hospital would be transmitted to the conference hall at Vivanta By Taj – Surya, and there would be interaction with the experts.
