This fellowship has broadened my view and understanding of orthopaedics and all things French.

In hip replacements, I saw the value of accurate templating and the use of collared hip implants to double mobility bearings and minimally invasive surgery. The “French” techniques of multi-ligament knee reconstructions, osteotomies and patella-femoral stabilisation was second to none.

Everyone I met was friendly, warm, accommodating and eager to teach. To top it all, the food in Lyon was fantastic! Indeed, I have learnt the “art” of orthopaedics and good living here in France. I will definitely return!
