Public witness live orthopaedic surgery

knee replacement surgery

More than 60 members of the public took up the opportunity to witness live surgery at a special event at Goole and District hospital.

The audience watched via video link as a total knee replacement and a shoulder arthroscopy were carried out. Prospective patients, former patients, GPs, commissioners and staff were in attendance as Mr Ricardo Pacheco and Mr Grant Bayne performed surgery.

Clinical lead for trauma and orthopaedics at the Trust Mr Molitor guided the audience through the knee operation so they understood what was happening. After the operations people were given the chance to ask the clinicians about the operations. People asked questions about the operation itself, recovery and the type of patients they operate on.

A physiotherapist talked about the service they offer to patients to aid a quick recovery and an anaesthetist was on hand to debate the benefits of spinal injections as opposed to general anaesthetic for joint replacements.

Patient Ian Dewer spoke to the audience about his experiences at the hospital having had two knee replacements and a shoulder operation. He said: “There’s no finer hospital; the staff are very friendly. I’ve had three operations here, which have changed my life. It’s not only enhanced my life but the lives of my family as well.”

The event was held to showcase the different orthopaedic services on offer at the hospital where around 1,200 orthopaedic operations are carried out every year. Shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle and foot surgery is offered with specialist services including complex knee replacements and revisions, cartilage defects, sports injuries and soft tissue injuries. The surgical team comprises a number of specialist consultants who between them have many years of experience and are experts in their field. The hospital is also an expert learning centre for medical students for partial knee replacements

General manager for surgery and critical care Anthony Fitzgerald said: “We wanted to showcase the good things about the NHS and give people the chance to hear from consultants, therapy teams and patients who have been through operations at the hospital.

“We provide an excellent range of high-quality services within the hospital’s orthopaedic department and hopefully the chance to view live surgery as well as talk to the surgeons who actually perform helped reassure people who might have had concerns or queries about undergoing an operation of this kind.”

“What we’re trying to do is dispel some myths. A lot of people living in the area think you have to go to larger hospitals for this sort of surgery, but that isn’t true.”

For those thinking of using the hospital in the future there was also a tour or wards and theatres. One member of the public who attended said he hopes to become a patient in the future. Paul Arrand, from Hessle, said: “It’s been a very helpful day. I have a knee problem which has been ongoing for around 18 months and I’ve been in a lot of pain. Having come here today I’ve now got into my head which consultant I want to see. And I’ve already booked an appointment with my GP to request a referral.

“I’ve been told in the past at another hospital that nothing can be done for my knee, but I’ve learned today that there’s a lot more that can be done; it’s given me hope.”

Live tweets from the @GooleHospital account throughout the day meant those who couldn’t attend the event could see photos of the surgery as it happened.
