Full-Day on Advanced Concepts in Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement

The EFORT focused sessions on advanced total hip and total knee replacement have achieved great acceptance among EFORT Congress participants as an established element of training since 2014.

The high attendance and the early interest that accompany this full-day program are added reasons to renew, once more, the experience this year in Lisbon. The two planned sessions will cover all the latest approaches to reconstruction of knee (morning) and hip (afternoon) in adults. The aim is to provide younger joint replacement specialists and more experienced senior consultants alike, with an update on the latest in techniques and treatments.

Thursday 23 June 2022 | Session Room: Lisbon 

Advanced Concepts in Total Knee Replacement (TKA) | 08:00-12:00

A panel of recognised European experts with in-depth experience in total knee replacement will share their knowledge with a focus on the role and duties of PKR and present case-based discussions with relive surgeries to highlight failures & complications.

A dedicated session around the use of technology will highlight its importance in improving the satisfaction for both, patients and surgeons.

Advanced Concepts in Total Hip Replacement (THA) | 14:30-18:30

The format of this exchange, including lectures, open debates and case presentations, will lead to a deep evaluation of all possibilities for the practitioners facing a calcaneal fracture.
