Professor Ciaran Bolger of Beaumont Hospital, Dublin, became the latest Visiting Professor to speak at an event organised by St George’s Trauma and Orthopaedics department.

Professor Bolger, who is Professor of Clinical Neuroscience at the Beaumont Hospital, is well respected in his field and St George’s was delighted to welcome him to speak at a meeting of our spinal multidisciplinary team.

He was previously the President of the European Spine Society and is also a qualified astronaut for NASA.

Earlier this year the President of the Scoliosis Research Society visited St George’s to surgeons from our Trauma and Orthopaedics team and delivered a presentation at a special symposium on the treatment of paediatric scoliosis deformity.
