Belgian Association of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology focuses on high-quality science, collaboration

Orthopaedics Today Europe, July 2016

For an orthopaedic society with about 500 members, the Belgian Association of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology just launched a government-mandated hip and knee joint replacement registry, had its best attendance at its 2016 semi-annual meeting, and supports and encourages the work of its members within the organization’s nine, highly active subspecialty groups.

Belgium has two orthopaedic societies, Olivier Verborgt, MD, PhD, who is the president of the Belgian Association of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology (BVOT), told Orthopaedics Today Europe. BVOT is the society that represents Flemish-speaking orthopaedic surgeons in Belgium, and the Belgian Royal Society of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology (SORBCOT) represents the French-speaking orthopaedists.
