During the past 4 years, the EFORT Advanced Course on Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement has achieved great acceptance among our congress participants as an established element of training. The high attendance and the early interest accompanying this course are supplementary reasons why it will be held again this year in Vienna, free of extra charge.
The course will feature an extended program on the latest approaches to reconstruction of knee (morning) and hip (afternoon) in adults. The aim of the course is to provide younger joint replacement specialists and more experienced senior consultants alike with an update on the latest in techniques and treatments.
