CANCELLED – Talk by Clive Lee on ’50 Years of the Exeter Hip’ @ Room 101, Harrison Building, Streatham Campus
Sep 9 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Unfortunately this event has had to be cancelled, because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic

We are having a special meeting to celebrate the fact that it is 50 years since the first Exeter Hip operation was performed. Our own Clive Lee was co-developer of the hip, along with the late Professor Robin Ling who was an orthopaedic surgeon. Clive used his engineering skills to design a hip stem with a profoundly different geometry to those available at the time. The innovative design has transformed hip surgery, due to its long-lasting results for patients of all ages. It is widely considered to be the ‘industry gold standard’, and has now improved the quality of life for about two million people around the world.

It is appropriate that this meeting is being held in the Harrison Building on North Park Road on the Streatham Campus, since that is where Clive did much of his research. We have also decided to make this an evening meeting, because of the difficulty of getting a meeting room and parking spaces during the afternoon.

Transport

By car: It is recommended that you use Carpark D, which is close to Harrison Building (the building marked 23 on the map). That carpark can be reached by entering the campus at Stocker Road, and then turning right into Rennes Drive, and then left.

By bus: The D bus runs every 15 minutes from the High Street, and stops at the beginning of North Park Road. Buses back in the late evening run every half hour.

To book, please contact Peter by 2 September.
