AADO Asian Fellowship Programme 2010
A Report from Dr. Pankaj Aggarwal
01 August - 24 August 2011
It is a report from Dr. Pankaj Aggarwal, one of the successful applicants of AADO Asian Fellowship Programme in Queen Elizabeth Hospital at Hong Kong, who had a visit there on 01 August - 24 August 2011.
It gives me immense pleasure in writing this report about the trauma fellowship at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Hongkong. First of all, I would like to thank AADO for giving me this opportunity to attend the fellowship program held from 1st August 2011 – 24th August 2011. The correspondence from Mrs. Kellan Cheung and Ms. Terry Leung was very prompt and I could get my Visa in time only because of the special effort made by Mrs. Kellan Cheung.

I also want to thank Dr. Shen who is a great visionary and makes a lot of effort in teaching his students. The hospitality with which we were treated here by Dr. Shen and his team and all the staff is beyond comprehension. The powerpoint presentations showed by Dr. Shen were wonderful. I do trauma regularly in my country but Dr. Shen showed me the finer points in many trauma cases for better results. He also taught us different techniques to get out of difficult situations during surgery. He introduced us to a lot of new concepts in nailing in the peritrocantric region. I also want to thank Dr. K.B.Lee who showed us many trauma and muscle flap procedures. I had a great time in the department and never felt out of place because of other team members, namely Dr. Gary, Dr. Edmund, Dr. Wong, Dr. Rio and Dr. Adam who were very friendly from the beginning.
I also want to thank AADO for giving me the opportunity to attend the Pelvi –Acetabular cadaveric workshop held on 21-22 August which turned out to be an extremely useful workshop.
I feel really grateful to all the AADO team and its members and I wish to come again to Hongkong whenever I get another opportunity.
