Following the great success of Birmingham Patella-femoral course in 2012, which was the first meeting in UK to be dedicated to Patello-femoral joint disorders in both young and aging population, we are delighted to announce that the second meeting will be held on 19th and 20th of September 2014.

Similar to last year's meeting , the course aims at level of consultants and senior registrars. It will run over two days with the first day dedicated to the young patella-femoral joint problems including children (instability, pain), while the second day will focus on the early and established arthritic Patella-femoral joint management. In both days the delegates will learn through lectures, hands-on workshops and clinical case discussion delivered by the world experts in the field.

We are honoured to welcome our faculty for the second Masterclass meeting which include some of the most imminent world experts in the field from both Europe and the States together with Key opinion leaders from UK.

The programme for the second meeting will cover the latest update on different techniques used for treatment of instability in children and adults including what we have learned since our last meeting, management of the early arthritic PFJ and a well informed session on the three available PFJ arthroplasty implants available in the market, together with workshops on different techniques of Patello-femoral joint surgery.


Clinical case discussion


Social opportunity


The venue

A key element to the meeting will be these discussions. Both the faculty and delegates will be presented with a wide variety of clinical cases. The panel will then discuss the treatment options based on their surgical experience and expertise and then open the floor to debate and discussion – you can be sure of a wide variety of views on outcomes, procedures, complications and other issues relating the the knee.


Discussion and debate is a key part of any course, that’s why there will be an opportunity for delegates and faculty to network over an informal dinner on Friday evening. You will be able to enjoy some of the finest local cuisine that Birmingham is renowned for, at one of the local restaurants, you can confirm your place when completing the delegate booking form.


The course is based at the New Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. The main conference will take place in their purpose built, tiered lecture theatre in the hospitals Education Centre, which boasts the very latest in audio visual technology with breakout sessions immediately opposite the auditorium.

Birmingham Pat-Fem Instructional Course of 2012



We had an extremely successful meeting in 2012 as confirmed by the overwhelmingly positive feedback received. We have knowingly planned a slightly different content to the program and faculty in order to cover topics which remained uncovered.

Delegates who attended the 2012 course will enjoy a different perspective.
