Liverpool Hope Professor to speak at international sports medicine congress

Liverpool Hope professor Omid Khaiyat will speak in front of hundreds of delegates at an international sports medicine congress in Denmark.

The acting head of Hope’s Health Sciences department is in Copenhagen at the 15th Scandinavian Sports Medicine Congress, to give a presentation about the condition of tennis elbow and impingement on Saturday 2 February.
He will also discuss his research into electromyography, a specialist technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by muscles – and its implications for treatment.
“I’m delighted to have been invited to speak here about an area I have been working in for over a decade,” said Prof Khaiyat.
"The opportunity to share ideas with other experts in the field will be great."
Other talks at the congress will focus on sports orthopaedic surgery, sports rehabilitation – which is to become a degree at Hope this year - sports rheumatology and anti-doping.
Prof Khaiyat graduated in medicine in 1995 (MD) and obtained his PhD in musculoskeletal science (sports medicine) from the University of Liverpool in 2006.
He is also a registered medical practitioner and holds an honorary contract with the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust.
