Orthopaedic basic science for the postgraduate examination: practice MCQs and EMQs

Designed for trainees preparing to sit the written section of the FRCS (Tr & Orth) or equivalent examination. Whilst much of the general orthopaedic curriculum is often learnt from clinical exposure, knowledge of the basic sciences frequently requires more specific attention. Drawing partly on material from the hugely successful Orthopaedic Research UK courses, this book simultaneously provides a tool for assessing knowledge levels and a means of rapidly assimilating detailed facts. The authors are all approaching, or have achieved completion of higher surgical and fellowship training, but have sufficiently recent experience of postgraduate orthopaedic examinations to ensure that the questions are representative of the level and scope required.

Orthopaedic basic and clinical science for the postgraduate examination: viva practice & diagrams

Designed for trainees preparing to sit the oral section of the FRCS (Tr & Orth) or equivalent examination. There is a temptation for exam preparation to focus all too heavily on pure knowledge acquisition at the expense of practising viva technique. This book therefore aims to stimulate a more problem-based approach through the use of mock vivas, as well as encouraging candidates to practise drawing out and labelling the diagrams frequently asked by examiners. Conceived as a companion volume to the hugely successful Practice EMQs and MCQs, and drawing partly on material from the popular Orthopaedic Research UK courses, this text simultaneously provides a tool for assessing knowledge levels and a means of rapidly assimilating detailed facts.

Mr Peter Domos, Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon, Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust

Mr Peter Domos is double-fellowship trained (United Kingdom and France) Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon with subspecialty interest in shoulder and elbow surgery at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust in London, United Kingdom.

Mr Domos provides general trauma and full comprehensive shoulder and elbow services for degenerative disorders, sport injuries and complex trauma. His specialist interests are in shoulder and elbow arthroscopy, open joint reconstruction and joint replacement.

He is an active British Elbow and Shoulder Society (BESS), British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) and European Society for Shoulder and Elbow Surgery (SECEC/ESSSE) member. He was awarded the winner of the BESS Travelling Fellowship 2014, as well as the Paul Calvert Research Paper Prize, the ISAKOS Upper Limb Travelling Fellowship 2016 and several other international and national awards. In addition to his year-long fellowship in France, he has also visited several other leading shoulder and elbow surgeons in Europe (18 surgeons across 6 countries).

Mr Domos is a keen teacher and trainer of GPs, physiotherapists, junior doctors and orthopaedic trainees. He is a member of the Watanabe Club, which is a group of shoulder surgeons with unified interest in sharing experiences and techniques to the next generation. He is consistently involved in research (which has led to an MD degree), with several publications in peer-review journals, book chapters and annual presentations at various scientific meetings. To maintain his professional development he regularly attends and teaches (as Faculty member) at national and international courses, to keep his knowledge and skills up-to-date. In recognition of his clinical and research contributions he was elected as a Member of the Committee of the prestigious European Society for Surgery of the Shoulder and the Elbow, alongside world-renowned surgeons.

Mr Kishan Gokaraju, Upper Limb Fellow, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane, Australia

Mr Kishan Gokaraju was a Sheffield University graduate and went on to complete his consultant training on the prestigious Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Stanmore) rotation. During training, he gained valuable experience in major trauma and elective surgery, working with some of London’s leading upper limb surgeons. He is currently completing the Australian Orthopaedic Association accredited upper limb fellowship at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, a level 1 trauma centre in Brisbane. In this post he has been able to gain significant experience in complex shoulder-to-hand trauma and elective surgery and including microsurgery.

In addition to this, he has completed travelling fellowships in both France and North America. Having visited shoulder and elbow centres of excellence in Nice and Lyon, he did an observership with Prof Athwal at the Roth McFarlane Hand and Upper Limb Centre in London, Ontario and spent time with Dr Millett at the world-renowned Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado. For these, he was awarded the Seddon Society and Royal Society of Medicine Travelling Fellowship Awards and is the current British Elbow and Shoulder Society (BESS) Travelling Fellow.

Academically, he has presented work both nationally and internationally and has written both a book chapter and several published articles. He continues to be highly active in upper limb research but also has developed a significant educational portfolio which includes teaching on several ST3 Interview and FRCS(Orth) courses. Following leading and organising the Stanmore Rotation Targeted FRCS(Orth) Teaching Program for 2 years, it gives Kishan great pride to have been able to transition these skills towards initiating and organising this focused and comprehensive elbow and shoulder FRCS course.
