#181 Southland Hospital orthopaedic dept: Simulated TKR surgery and explainer

Southland hospital ran an ‘open day’ type event today raising funds for the Wishbone Orthopaedic Research foundation. I had no idea what to expect, but given any opportunity to see behind the scenes in a hospital and ask some clever people some medical questions – I’m there!

The coolest part: a simulated TKR surgery on a dummy meaning I can show you exactly what I went through, without the blood and gore! And… I finally got to see the exact type of implant they put in my knee up close.
