Patella Instability, the options – a professional education session with SASMA

In March, Medical and allied health professionals joined us at our Stepney Healthcare Hub for a SA Sports Medicine Association (SASMA) Professional Educational session. Orthopaedic Surgeons Dr Claire Bolton and Dr Shahram Shahrokhi presented on the topic of patella instability.

The informative session was open to a wide range of professional practitioners and sports trainers. This included Sports Doctors, General Practitioners, Physiotherapists, Podiatrists and Exercise Physiologists.

On the night, we were thrilled to welcome some attendees in a face-to-face capacity, observing COVID-19 guidelines. Others tuned in via Zoom from the comfort of their office or home.

Patella instability is a common knee condition. It typically affects a young and active population. The education session outlined an approach to diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic patella instability.

Our practitioners are always happy to share their experience and knowledge. You can find out more about Orthopaedic Surgeons Dr Claire Bolton and Dr Shahram Shahrokhi by visiting their profiles.
