Our traveling fellowship started in Lyon, France’s second-largest city which is immersed in rich historical and cultural tradition. On Oct 6 morning, Dr. David Dejour picked us up from the hotel and we headed straight to the operating room. The day was packed with 8 surgeries, back and forth between 2 operating rooms and 2 very efficient surgical teams. The surgical cases included patellofemoral arthroplasty, salvage trochleoplasty, MPFL reconstruction and tibial tubercle distalization. The sad part was that there was no time for lunch. The evening dinner was hosted by Dr. Dejour at Brasserie Leon de Lyon with Professor Elvire Servien, Dr. Guillaume Demey and a visiting fellow. On Oct 7, we visited the Albert Trillat Center at University Hospital, where we were greeted by Professor Philippe Neyret and Professor Servien. It was wonderful for Professor Servien to present the ‘History of French Orthopaedics’ with brief introduction of the pioneers of patellofemoral surgery. The morning session ended with case discussions. That afternoon gave us some free time to hike up the ‘Fourviere’ and the ‘Roman ruins’. The morning of Oct 8 was again spent with Dr. Dejour in the operating room where we had chance to discuss some cases, interact with him and get more surgical perspective on the patellofemoral joint.
