Mr Guy was fortunate to be sponsored to take part in a prestigious International AO ‘Masters’ Trauma course. The course took place at altitude in the beautiful Swiss ski-resort of Davos. Sadly no skiing took place despite idyllic conditions! The course was intense and focused on lower limb trauma. It was a fantastic meeting of surgeons from all round the world who are experts in their field. The teaching took part in the large AO conference area in Davos but also cadaveric work in the local hospital. The highlight for Mr Guy was the traditional evening fireside lectures. These involved sitting in front of a roaring fire in an informal atmosphere discussing some of the worst knee injuries imaginable was certainly rewarding.
