Welcome to Geneva

welcomeGVA_670x150Dear Participants,

The Executive Committee of EFORT and swiss orthopaedics would like to invite you to attend the 17th EFORT Congress in Geneva on 01–03 June 2016 which is a combined programme in partnership with swiss orthopaedics.

The EFORT Scientific Programme Group, chaired by Professor Thierry Bégué, the Specialist Societies and scientific experts members have created a wide programme covering many topics from basic research to areas within daily practice of orthopaedics and trauma by also integrating the perspective of the main theme of the Congress in Geneva revolving around “Maintaining Activity Through Life”.

Highlights of the Congress include clinical judgement in the ageing spine, influence of age on reconstruction in bone tumours, early care achieves lifetime mobility, degenerative foot and ankle as well as pitfalls in rotator cuff surgery only to mentioned a few. As in previous editions, the Michael Freeman and Erwin Morscher honorary lectures will be given by renowned orthopaedic surgeons. Swiss orthopaedics’ plenary lecture – the Maurice Edmond Müller session – will also be included in the programme and will be open to all participants.

The format of the meeting is designed to encourage interaction among participants, with both symposia and instructional lectures being delivered by distinguished speakers from all over Europe. Among the other sessions are the interactive expert exchanges, complex case discussions and debate fora, as well as several on evidence based medicine sessions.

We all look forward to meeting you at the 17th EFORT Congress in the city of Geneva – a cosmopolitan city of humane dimensions in the heart of Europe.
