Join orthopaedic expert Mark Glyde on this 2-day highly practical course and bring the MIPO benefits to your patients

Minimally Invasive Plate Osteosynthesis or MIPO involves inserting bone plates through skin portals and using them in bridging mode across the fracture site. This course will teach you the essential decision-making principles of MIPO complimented by a series of wet lab practicals where you'll get comfortable with the MIPO technique.
