Oxford Centre of Excellence Visitation

Thank you for attending the Oxford Centre of Excellence visitation.

During the visitation, Professor Martin McNally will present on the multidisciplinary approach, management steps, and surgical techniques at Oxford with results of their clinical experience utilizing local delivery of antibiotics with bone graft substitute. In theatres, you will see the diagnostic approach, surgical excision and use of CERAMENT G in patients with various bone infections.

You are welcome to ask any questions and engage in the case discussions.

As an additional educational resource for you, below you will find copies of all the clinical papers referred to during the presentation, as well as an overview of the Oxford protocol for managing dead space, shared with kind permission of Prof. McNally.

We hope you enjoy your experience and find it useful for your practice. If you have any questions about the visitation, please contact Mia Lilliehorn.

You can find additional resources about using CERAMENT in chronic osteomyelitis here and fracture-related infections here, or if you have more questions about CERAMENT would like a BONESUPPORT representative to contact you, please click on the button below.
