President’s Monthly Update – April 2022

Dear Members,

Welcome to our April newsletter! The ‘BHS Midweek Special’ series came to an end this month with the last episode on Tackling Bone Loss in the Revision setting being aired on the 13th. It was a successful educational venture with over 500 delegates watching the series live in the UK and over 14, 000 in the Asia Pacific region via OrthoTV Global throughout the year. It also gave an opportunity for members to be involved with the BHS education portfolio and it was an excellent platform for the society to keep in touch with its members during the difficult phase of COVID-19. For those who missed it, all the episodes are available on our repository Panopto via the website HERE. Watch the video HERE for a summary / overview of the BHS Midweek Special

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the speakers who participated with great enthusiasm and gave up their valuable time so generously which contributed towards the success of this programme. Building on the success of this programme, we will introduce the Surgical Legacy podcast series commencing in June this year, so the 2nd Wednesday evenings of the month will continue to be busy!

I am pleased to announce a fantastic opportunity in the form of a new Travelling Fellowship for our members wherein two Fellows from the BHS will travel together with two Fellows from the North American Hip Society to centres of excellence in the UK over a three-week period in September 2023 culminating at the annual BOA Congress in Birmingham. Please find further details of the Fellowship and the application process can be seen in the video HERE

We have also introduced a new section in the newsletter “Meet the Executive” which will highlight the profile of an Executive member each month. This month, we have Prof. Dominic Meek, our President Elect.

April, again has been a busy month for the Society and the individual representatives have highlighted the progress in their specific domains below.

Finally, I am looking forward to our Away Day this month in Edinburgh, a tradition commenced by Steve Jones in his tenure as President. This strategic event has proven very useful over the years and allows for the Executive to debate, discuss and plan the societies activities throughout the year and also allows for assessment of the Congress venue for next year. I shall report back on the highlights from the meeting in the next newsletter.

Best Wishes,

Vikas Khanduja MA (Cantab), MSc, FRCS (Orth), PhD.

President, British Hip Society
