« It was a great honor to go for an overseas training in 2016 as a recipient of SICOT international Travelling Fellowship award. I received one-month training at the Centre Orthopédique Santy, FIFA Medical Centre of excellence.
The Centre Orthopédique Santy has been known to be a “sacred” place of sports injuries and orthopaedic surgery, attracting many visiting fellows from all around the world »
Testimony of Dr Matt C. DAGGETT
« When I finalized my plans to do a shoulder fellowship in Lyon, I knew it would be a great experience, but I didn’t know it would be the best experience of my career. I learned so much about the shoulder and gained fresh perspectives on the treatment of internal impingement, instability, rotator cuff disease and arthritis. I was fortunate to participate in interesting research. »
« It was a privilege and an experience of a lifetime to have spent time during 2007 meeting the many surgeons the world over involved in Shoulder and Elbow surgery. »

« During the last year of our residency training, we are supported by the department to partake in an international elective for 2 weeks. I recently traveled to Lyon, France to work with internationally acclaimed shoulder surgeon, Dr. Gilles Walch. »
Testimony of Nuno Camelo Barbosa
« I’m Nuno Camelo Barbosa a Portuguese Orthopaedic resident, and I completed a fellowship at the Centre Orthopédique Santy with Dr Bertrand Sonnery-Cottet for three months this year.
The fellowship was very well organized, we had 2 days of consultation, 2 days in operating room and one day was fully dedicated to scientific work.
The consultation begins at 7.45/8.00 and throughout it we discuss the patients physical examination, mcdts and clinical cases.
The operating room day normally starts at 7.00, during it we have the chance to observe and learn technical details of the procedure, between surgeries we often discuss recent literatures important topics.
We also are assigned scientific work. Generally we start with a meeting for introduction of the work, afterwards we collect the clinical data and do an extensive search of bibliography over the subject. Discussion about the scientific work is done on daily base which allows for constant advances in the scientific work.
In the 3 months I passed in Santy I was given the opportunity to enter in 6 scientific works (scientific articles). I greatly recommend the fellowship at Centre Orthopédique Santy. »
Case log of Matthew F. Dilisio
« My time with Dr. Walch, Dr. Neyton, and Dr. Godeneche was without question the highlight of my orthopaedic education. The principles and techniques that I was taught in Lyon have become the basis of my understanding of shoulder surgery, and will I emulate Dr. Walch’s methods for the rest of my career. When you operate with Dr. Walch, you understand why he is the standard to which so many surgeons around the world measure their ability as a surgeon. »
