    • Topic: “The Snapping Scapula” 2008

    This involved cadaver dissection, 4D CT scans, arthroscopic surgery which resulted in discovering and proving a concept suggested by Simon Bell that there existed the potential for a new safe portal (The BELL Portal) for arthroscopic resection of the snapping scapula
