Full-day in total hip and total knee replacement: Learn from experts

EFORT

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 their creation in 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 on 6 June.

The two planned sessions 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.

This detailed program proved to deliver a wide enough and well-balanced scientific content, complemented by the interactivity of the discussion periods.
