Tight Rope repair in Cruciate Disease
We are all presented with cruciate disease in our daily practice. There are a myriad of techniques available to correct the problem. No one topic and method of repair can spark debate such as the debate surrounding the myriad techniques of cruciate surgery. Dr Nel will discuss the tight rope method of repair and his personal experiences using this method of repair.

Surgical approach to extra-hepatic biliary disease
The multitude of hepatobiliary diseases that have become increasingly diagnosed in practice can sometimes leave the clinician frustrated and unsure of what approach to follow to reach a successful resolution of these cases. Dr Nel will discuss his treatment of mucocoeles and extra-hepatic biliary surgery.
