    orthohub stories: David Sellu

    orthohub stories: David Sellu

    David Sellu (https://www.davidsellu.com) was a respected colorectal surgeon with a record of over 40 years of outstanding medical service. He saved countless lives over 4 decades of practice, but then one patient encounter changed his life forever when a patient died under his care in February 2010. He was investigated by the GMC and then tried at the Old Bailey, where he was charged and convicted of gross negligence manslaughter in 2013.

    Many of the complexities of the case were not adequately explained or explored to the jury, and he was convicted by a jury with a majority of 10-2. He was jailed in a maximum security prison at the age of 66 and served 15 months of a two-and-a-half year prison sentence. His conviction was later quashed on appeal after major failings were discovered regarding his first trial.

    His story is one that sent shockwaves throughout medicine and has implications for every doctor.

    This conversation uncovers his early years in Sierra Leone where he received no formal education and taught himself how to read and write, often studying under street-lamps for illumination. He went on to win a scholarship to Manchester Medical School, become a Senior Lecturer in Surgery at Hammersmith Hospital and a Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon in Oman and London.

    It is a story that encompasses a stellar career, medical error and blame culture, injustice, the brutality of life in prison, the battle to overturn his conviction and clear his name, and the ongoing fight to make sure this never happens again.

    orthohub stories: Deborah Eastwood

    orthohub stories: Deborah Eastwood

    On International Women’s day, we bring you the first episode of a new feature: orthohub stories.
     
    Pete Bates interviews Deborah Eastwood, President Elect of the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA).

    Deborah talks about growing up, choosing surgery and her passage to becoming one of the most influential and indeed inspirational women in British and European orthopaedics.

    We discuss yards of ale, how being a medical student and junior doctor has changed over the years, and how the job of being a surgical trainer has had to flex to accommodate.

    Are medical graduates nowadays cleverer and better doctors than her generation were?

    Has the template for being a great role-model changed and has ‘the clinical team’ been degraded?

    We discuss leadership and what makes a bad leader! 

    The BOA gets a close-up inspection; we talk pretty frankly about inclusivity and what they’re doing about the white, male-dominated image that some of us have of our advocating body. 

    How do you instigate cultural change in an organisation like the BOA and is it effective at lobbying government on our behalf?

    There’re tons of other little nick-nacks and words of wisdom, not to mention the ideal breakfast.

    episode 13: shoulder instability - raiders of the lost arc

    episode 13: shoulder instability - raiders of the lost arc

    aka shoulder instability for dummies.

    Following on from our orthohub webinar, Kash and Pete dive into the murky world of shoulder instability.

    Our guest is Graham Tytherleigh-Strong, described by many as a gentleman surgeon. 
    We discuss all aspects of shoulder instability, including hypothetical situations of shoulder dislocations in ever-changing ages and genders (try and keep up!)

    We also get the lowdown on life in a real tank and Graham's training and career, as well as finding glaring holes in Pete's knowledge of eponymous conditions.
    We dissect:
    the first-time dislocator, their management and risks of further dislocationthe ins and outs of return to sport after conservative treatmentanterior glenohumeral instability in the contact athletewhen to operate and when not towhat to do with recurrent atraumatic dislocators and what does "sequencing" actually meancomparisons with patella instability how to spot a "muscle patterner" and the role of the Stanmore trianglewhy do shoulder stabilisations failwhat is a "Ibahibine"what to do when Latarjets go wrong..and much much more!It really is impressive listening to Graham trying to be professional throughout whilst trying to handle two jokers with limited knowledge of the field. He explains things brilliantly in simple language that anyone can understand, so much so that Pete is now all set for a new career as a shoulder arthroscopist!
    As always, listen out to the end for a musical Easter Egg, this time a request from our guest!
