Lakeview Private Hospital specialist takes orthopaedic expertise to India
Lakeview Private Hospital orthopaedic surgeon Dr Kalman Piper recently travelled to India to meet with surgeons, share his specialist knowledge and perform live shoulder surgery demonstrations.
Dr Piper was invited by DePuy Synthes, one of the world’s largest orthopaedic device companies. He travelled to four cities in India to pass on the arthroscopic shoulder surgery techniques he obtained during his fellowship training in France with Dr Laurent Lafosse, one of the world’s foremost shoulder surgeons.
“It was a great privilege to be asked to help develop the skills of surgeons in India,” said Dr Piper. “It is a fascinating country with a dedicated group of orthopaedic surgeons committed to continually seeking out world-best practice. “The highlight of the visit was attending the 2nd Pune Shoulder and Elbow Congress where I performed live surgery to over 400 attendees,” he said.
Dr Piper is a founding doctor of Lakeview Private Hospital and member of Lakeview Private Hospital Orthopaedics. He has been appointed an honorary position as clinical lecturer at Macquarie University and is extensively involved with teaching and training of local and international surgeons.
