CSC - Fellowships in Orthopaedics, ENT, Ophthalmology, and Anaesthesia
The Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) provides free reconstructive surgery to children and adults in Phnom Penh and specialist training for young Cambodian surgeons. CSC started out in 1998 revising amputation stumps, repairing clefts and removing cataracts and over the last 20 years the scope of surgery for congenital and acquired disability has expanded dramatically. The scope of orthopaedic surgery includes limb reconstruction, complex congenital spinal cases, brachial plexus repairs, and surgery for a variety of congenital paediatric conditions. ENT focuses primarily on Otology and Audiology, and Ophthamology on cataract, retina and paediatric surgery. New techniques are introduced with visiting specialist teams from within the region and beyond. Current academic partnerships include Oxford University, University of Bristol, University of Toulouse, Hong Kong University and University of Malaysia.
This is an excellent opportunity for senior registrars or recent graduates from subspeciality training courses to share their knowledge while learning to manage interesting, unusual, and complex cases. James Shelton, one of our 2019 orthopaedic fellows writes-
“This really is an amazing opportunity for any orthopaedic trainee in terms of the clinical experience on offer, the pathology is wild and you really get to use your higher order thinking to see what can be achieved…
“There are numerous visiting teams from all over the globe, which leads to a number of mini-fellowships in a variety of orthopaedic specialties.
“We did it with our 2 year old son too – there are a million reasons not to move your family to a developing country but honestly take the plunge it’s the best thing we ever did.”
