Several of our surgeons from Geelong Orthopaedics were invited to speak at the combined Victorian Tasmanian branch scientific meeting in Hobart in March. Dr Ganeshalingam discussed the growing Victorian Paediatric Orthopaedic network in her role as chair. Dr Eng spoke about elbow instability. Prof Page talked about future directions in shoulder surgery and registries in research. It was great to have a combined meeting, and many educational discussions were enjoyed as well as the beauty of Hobart.
