This month, James joined other sub-specialised orthopaedic shoulder surgeons from all over the world at ArthoParis Convention. This meeting is a large multi-national shoulder meeting that is held every 2 years. It provides the opportunity for surgeons to meet and discuss interesting cases, cutting edge techniques and surgical advances. The meeting combines lectures, case discussions, surgical workshops and live surgical demonstrations. The meeting aims to keep surgeons up-to-date and enable them to learn new skills.
