The Harrogate Partial Knee Meeting


Senior trainees, newly appointed consultants


£125 (£150 after 1st March)


The Pavillions of Harrogate, UK

A two-day meeting focusing on Fixed-Bearing Unicompartmental and Patello-Femoral Arthroplasty.

Hosted in the delightful setting of the Pavilions of Harrogate, the course convenors are Harrogate Surgeons Nick London, Dave Duffy, Mark Farndon and Damian Bull. The meeting is aimed at senior orthopaedic trainees, knee fellows and new or established consultants. We have a great faculty on board featuring David Barrett, Richard Parkinson and Paul Nicolai.

Following the recent NICE guidelines recommending UKA as a treatment modality that should be offered to suitable patients; a particular focus of the meeting will be how to safely grow a UKA practice whilst under the shadow of the NJR.

Fixed-bearing partial knee arthroplasty is the gold standard for unicompartmental knee surgery combining outstanding patient outcomes and very low revision rates. We are delighted to announce an outstanding faculty combining 5 of the UK’s most experienced partial knee surgeons with a lower-volume but very experienced colleague and a recently-appointed colleague (for their unique perspectives).  The five senior surgeons have each performed thousands of partial knee procedures using the best fixed-bearing partial knee implants (Lima, DePuy and Zimmer Biomet).

This comprehensive meeting will provide:

  • a comprehensive review of the history and current state of partial knee arthroplasty

  • guidance of national joint registry data and how to safely commence a partial knee practice

  • clear evidence-based indications and selection criteria

  • surgical techniques, tips and tricks for medial, lateral and patello-femoral arthroplasty

  • panel discussions on assistive technology (including robotics), day surgery and other topics

The meeting is aimed at senior trainees, newly-appointed consultants and established consultants wishing to develop or expand their partial knee arthroplasty practice.
