Everything comes to an end, and every end is the start of yet another new beginning.
With great pleasure and enthusiasm, we started a long time ago with our mission to care for orthopaedic patients in the best possible way, and we have never lost that passion.
On 14 October 2023, we are very happy to serve, for one last time, as your chairs of a congress that we started together fourteen years ago, and which has since become a standard. Our annual meeting with like-minded people is and remains a benchmark for ourselves, our orthopaedic service, our loyal participants and, ultimately, our patients.
With this edition, we want to pass on the torch to the younger generation. They are animated with the same drive and also want to and will set new standards.
We are very proud to be able to offer you a fantastic and unpublished faculty on a theme that is particularly close to our hearts: “joint preservation in orthopaedics”. How can we best help Mother Nature delay, and preferably make unnecessary, prosthetic surgery as long as possible?
Our line-up brings a mix of exciting and innovative knee and hip joint preservation topics.
Keynote speaker Lars Engebretsen revolutionised the sports medicine world with his thorough research commissioned by the International Olympic Committee on sports injury prevention and he is an absolute world leader in this field.
In turn, Michael Dienst is doing pioneering work in the field of conservative hip arthroscopy and it is a great honour to host him as well.
In addition to these world-beaters, the entire faculty promises sparkling fireworks with innovation as the driving force
We look forward to welcoming you to this unforgettable congress on 14 October 2023!
IMPORTANT: All presentations will be given in English.
