Following our previous talk: 'Maxillofacial Trauma'

Thank you to all the speakers and attendees of our 3rd Trauma Late of the academic year, where we heard from three leading surgeons in the field of Maxillofacial Trauma.

Firstly, we heard from Mr Sandeep Paun, Consultant Facial Plastic Surgeon, who taught us about innovative concepts of rhinoplasty in nasofacial trauma. This was followed by a fascinating talk by Mr Andrew Coombes, Consultant Eye Surgeon, covering orbital compartment syndrome and how to manage this in the trauma patient. Our final speaker was Professor Simon Holmes, Consultant Maxillofacial Surgeon, who spoke to us not only about mechanisms of craniofacial fractures and reconstructive techniques, but also his career journey and what makes a great surgeon. We thank all these speakers for inspiring a future generation of facial surgeons!

Following our previous talk: 'Inside a Trauma Theatre’

The team would like to thank you to all the speakers and attendees who joined our 2nd Trauma Late of the year, covering trauma surgery!

We heard about topics including life-saving surgical interventions for patients who suffer from trauma affecting the whole body. Dr Zane Perkins gave us a fantastic insight into the surgical priorities when managing chest trauma.

Following this, Dr Kate Hancorn delivered a very engaging talk on damage control surgery and how to manage abdominal trauma.

We heard from Col. Nigel Tai on his experience managing vascular trauma in the civilian and military setting, with expert insight into how to surgically control major haemorrhage.

Finally, Dr Joanna Shepherd provided us with a brilliant overview of training to be a trauma surgeon and how juniors can prepare for a career in trauma surgery!
