A leading orthopaedic surgeon and knee expert is hosting the next two Medicine for Members (M4M) events organised by the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust.

Mr Gautam Chakrabarty, who has responsibility for between 8-900 cases every year, will run the events in the lecture theatre at Calderdale Royal Hospital on Thursday, June 27, at 5.30pm, with registration for 6pm.

He will be talking about a day in the life of an orthopaedic surgeon including his work and family life and about new developments in joint replacement.

Mr Chakrabarty has recently been made a Professor at the University of Huddersfield for heading up research into a new longer-lasting knee replacement joint.

He said: “I sometimes wish there were 36 hours in a day as I feel there is so much to fit in - work, operating, training, academic work and, of course, my family life. Getting that balance is not always easy but it is a must.

“My job is a very rewarding job and I have loved every single day of doing it.”

The M4M events is a series of evening talks which are open to the public interested in finding out more about health care and treatment developments from the local experts.

The events are hosted for Trust members but anyone wishing to attend can sign up to become a member at the event itself. The Trust has around 10,000 members – our supporters in the local communities and their representatives – the Membership Council – help the Trust shape services to serve our local communities.
