Overview

This course is designed for candidates preparing for the FRCS (Tr & Orth) examinations or equivalent, and trainees who are in their earlier years of training (ST3 – ST8).
This programme features prominent specialists in the fields of elbow, hand, and shoulder surgery, offering comprehensive instruction on the anatomy, biomechanics, conditions, and treatment of the upper limb. The course comprises three days of dedicated lecture sessions for each topic, incorporating interactive discussions and Q&A sessions. Additionally, participants will engage in mock viva questions specifically tailored to upper limb subjects.

What past delegates have said: 

It has helped my understanding of shoulder and elbow conditions which I enjoy. Very useful as traditionally I believe most exam prep courses focused on everything but. (delegate, 2021)

It has really helped me. I feel much more confident and would now look forward to getting a shoulder/upper limb statin in the exam! (delegate, 2021)

Mr Kishan Gokaraju

Locum Consultant Upper Limb Surgeon, King's College Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Mr Kishan Gokaraju is a fellowship-trained consultant in trauma & orthopaedics with a specialist interest in upper limb surgery working in the King’s College Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

He was a Sheffield University graduate and went on to complete his consultant training on the prestigious Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Stanmore) rotation. During training, he gained valuable experience in general orthopaedics, major trauma and upper limb surgery, working with some of London’s leading upper limb surgeons. He has completed three internationally renowned upper limb fellowships in Brisbane, Sheffield & Coventry, developing skills in complex shoulder-to-hand trauma, including microsurgery, and upper limb elective surgery.

This has been augmented by completing further award-winning travelling fellowships in Europe & North America. Following visits to Pascal Boileau in Nice & both Lionel Neyton & Giles Walch in Lyon, he spent time with Peter Millet at the famous Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado, and with George Athwal and Graham King in London, Ontario. More recent visits include the Addenbrookes shoulder & elbow teams (Cambridge), the internationally renowned Wrightington Upper Limb Unit and the Fortius Clinic (London). Prizes include the travelling fellowship awards from Seddon Society, Royal Society of Medicine, British Elbow and Shoulder Society (BESS) and the Watanabe Club.

Academically, he has presented work nationally and internationally and has written both a book chapter and several published articles. He continues to be highly active in upper limb research but has a primary focus in orthopaedic education, having developed a significant educational portfolio which includes being an ATLS instructor and teaching on several ST3 Interview and FRCS(Orth) courses. Following leading and organising the Stanmore Rotation Targeted FRCS(Orth) Teaching Program for 2 years, it has given Kishan great pride to have been able to transition these skills towards initiating and organising this focused and comprehensive upper limb FRCS course that has been running successfully now for a number of years.
