Olympic Polyclinic

The Medical and Dental Polyclinic we work in has a lovely design internally too - here is the view from the staircase looking back to the main entrance and it's atrium which reaches all the way up to the third floor with a vertical glass wall on the right allowing in much natural light.

We are still seeing a number of traumas both current and past, with some atheletes desperate to still be allowed to compete and represent their country. As you can probably tell from this annonimised radiograph, on review of this poor fellow we still had to say NO, healing is not sufficient to be allowed to compete safely, even with a custom mouthguard made!

You do really feel sorry for some who have just seen 4 years worth of training and preparation be foiled by such events, maybe only months or a few weeks before the Olympics started, as well as more recently too.

Wow. Got to admire the commitment to represent their country. What sport was this sportsman (woman) competing in?
