During the past 4 years, the scientific-focused sessions on Advanced Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement at the EFORT Congress have achieved great acceptance among congress participants as an established element of training. The high attendance and early interest accompanying this course are other reasons why these sessions will be featured again this year at the EFORT Congress in Barcelona, free of extra charge.

The scientific program of Full Day in Total Hip & Knee Replacement will cover all the latest approaches to reconstruction of hip (morning) and knee (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.

A last chapter that foces on innovation will wrap-up this complete half-day summary of hip replacement techniques.
