PhD by research and publication. 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.
