Xmas Light Injuries..Tis the Season!

Christmas time is a time for family, friends and happiness. It is also a time when orthopaedic surgeons see a steady flow of injuries from installing Christmas lights! A study from Canada showed that people who injured themselves installing Christmas lights spent an average of 15 days in hospital. Unfortunately here in Australia, we see much of the same. Here is just a selection of the injuries we have seen over the past month. Please stay safe everyone...
