Dr Evelyn Kuong is an Associate Professor at the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine (University of Hong Kong) and an Orthopaedic Consultant at the Duchess of Kent Children's Hospital.
This episode covers skeletal dysplasias and is of particular interest for those approaching postgraduate examinations and the general orthopaedist who may encounter the occasional patient with a rare condition. We discuss a system of decision making, the role of the MDT and how to approach rare dysplasias. We delve into achondroplasia, pseudoachondroplasia, MED and SED. We then discuss the treatment of short stature in general terms.
We finish by discussing Dr Kuong's orthopaedic journey and her perspective on diversity in orthopaedics.
