18th Annual Research Day - Friday 28th April 2017
The 18th Annual Research Day was held on Friday 28th April. This has become one of the most important dates on the teaching calendar and is the occasion when Specialty Registrars present their research projects, many of which are supported financially by the Orthopaedic Institute Ltd, and for our Scientific Colleagues to showcase the excellent research projects they undertake.
Following the successful format of previous years parallel sessions were held during the morning; a scientific session was held in the ARC seminar room, whilst a clinical session ran concurrently in the Lecture Theatre. Both groups joined together during the afternoon for the podium presentations.
As usual we are indebted to our judges who give up their valuable time. The Scientific Programme was judged by: Professor Andrew Metcalfe, Associate Professor in Trauma and Orthopaedics, Warwick Clinical Trials Unit and Professor Eustace Johnson from the Biological Sciences Department at the University of Chester. Guest Speaker for the Scientific Session was Professor Tim Hardingham, from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell-Matrix Research at the University of Manchester, who gave a very interesting lecture on the "Stratification of Osteoarthritis".

The posters were of their usual high standard and the judges had a hard time selecting a winner. Eventually the winner of the best scientific poster was announced as Dr Jan Herman Kuiper with his poster entitled “Long-term Health Economic Outcomes of Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation”.
Winner of the best clinical poster, as adjudged by Mr Marck van Liefland, Mr Richard Potter and Mr Peter Gallacher, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons, was Mr Maulik Gandhi with his poster entitled “Formulating an Arthroscopic Simulation Curriculum – Trainees’ View on a Pilot Course”.
Presentations during the clinical oral session were judged by Mr Christopher Evans and Mr Nigel Kiely both Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons at RJAH and Mr Johnathan Stevenson, Specialist in Oncology & Arthroplasty at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, Birmingham.
Mr Gandhi completed a very successful day by also winning the Director’s Trophy for the most entertaining presentation “The Angry Score (TAS) – An Objective Tool to Guide the Young Surgeon of Home Stresses”.
Winner of the “Golden Test Tube” for the second consecutive year for the best scientific oral presentation was Major Neil Eisenstein with his presentation entitled “Left of Bang” Interventions in Trauma: A Conceptual Exploration of Trauma Prophylaxis in the Military Setting.”
The final prize winner of the afternoon was Mr Peter Craig who was awarded the prestigious Professor’s Medal for his presentation “Kneeling After Knee Replacement – Predicting the Unpredictable?”.
Mr Craig will formally be presented with his award at the annual Old Oswestrians’ reunion on 9th June. He will also represent the Oswestry/Stoke Training Programme in the BOA “Best of the Best” Competition at the annual congress taking place in Liverpool in September.
Guest Lecturer for the afternoon was Mr Fergal Monsell, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, who travelled from Bristol Royal Hospital for Sick Children to lecture on "The Art and Science of Deformity Correction: A Prejudiced View".
Finally, as always, we must thank all consultant trainers for their input, dedication and support of the trainees and to the Orthopaedic Institute Ltd for the continued support of many outstanding research projects carried out within the Trust.
