Hospital consultant receives Doctorate degree for collaborative Orthopaedic project
Mr Asterios Dramis, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust, recently received a Doctorate of Medicine degree from the University of Thessaly Medical School, Larissa, Greece for his project on Ewing Sarcoma of the Pelvis.
The thesis was in collaboration between the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Oncology Service, Birmingham, UK and the University of Thessaly Medical School, Larissa, Greece. It focussed on a condition called ‘Ewing Sarcoma of the Pelvis’ which is a rare bone tumour managed only in very specialised hospitals.
Mr Dramis said, ‘I am extremely proud to work in collaboration with the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Oncology Service and the University of Thessaly Medical School on this vital research project.’
Mr Dramis, who joined the Trust in 2014, attended the graduation ceremony in July which took place at the University of Thessaly Medical School, Larissa, Greece.
Elaine Hardy, General Manager at George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust said, ‘This is an invaluable achievement for the Department of Trauma & Orthopaedics at George Eliot Hospital. The department is dedicated to teaching and research which in turn increases the pace of the transition to better health for the whole community.’
The Orthopaedic Service at the George Eliot Hospital offers a comprehensive and extensive service which has demonstrated enhanced recovery rates, which, in return, means shorter stays in hospital for the patient.
This is the result of close collaborative working with other teams such as the Physiotherapy team and the Anaesthetics team.
