GUWAHATI, Sept 5: A surgeon from Singapore General Hospital, Denny Lie Tijauw Tjoen, conducted a live Surgery demonstration in Arthroscopy in the city recently, for the benefit of local professiol colleagues. It was attended by more than 100 surgeons of the region. The organizer, CME of GNRC Hospital, NC Bora said: "Arthroscopy is a procedure like laparoscopy, in which a scope or camera is inserted inside one's joint like knee or shoulder. Various procedures can be performed by this advanced technique like reconstruction of ligaments and repair of meniscus etc. The advantage of this kind of surgery is that the joint need not be opened. It results in quicker recovery and reduced hospital stay thus saving huge resources for the patient's family. The demonstration would help our local surgeons to work in same spirit to help the patients of the state."
