    Join London Sports Orthopaedics for an evening discussing and debunking the myths in Orthopaedics. The Consultants of London Sports Orthopaedics return to the St Olaf Boardroom, providing a Head to Toe account of the typical statements you'll hear around medical professionals, but not all statements should be trusted.  

    Be prepared for an entertaining night of debate, research and years of clinical experience in the various subspecialties of Orthopaedics. 

    There'll be plenty of "Take Home" messages for GP's for clinical practice including how to manage common problems, when to refer and important language to impart to patients.
