Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Participants,

The Executive Committee of EFORT and the local organizing swiss orthopaedics would like to invite you to attend the 17th EFORT Congress in Geneva on 01–03 June 2016. We are delighted to announce that for the third time in the history of EFORT, this will be a combined meeting with a national society – in this instance swiss orthopaedics.

The EFORT Education Committee, chaired by Professor Thierry Bégué, with ongoing support from the Specialist Societies, has created an exceptional programme covering varied topics from basic research to areas within daily practice of orthopaedics and trauma. The main theme of the Congress in Geneva will be “Maintaining Activity Through Life”.

Highlights of the Congress include clinical judgement in the aged spine, influence of age on reconstruction in bone tumours, early care achieves lifetime mobility, degenerative foot and ankle as well as pitfalls in rotator cuff surgery only to mentioned a few. As in previous editions, there will be the Michael Freeman and Erwin Morscher honorary lectures, delivered by two highly distinguished orthopaedic surgeons. Swiss orthopaedics’ plenary lecture – the Maurice Edmond Müller session – will also be included in the programme and will be open to all participants.

The format of the meeting is again designed to encourage interaction among participants, with both symposia and instructional lectures being delivered by distinguished speakers from all over Europe. Among the other sessions are the interactive expert exchanges, complex case discussions and debate fora, as well as several on evidence based medicine sessions.

The scientific programme would, however, be incomplete without your participation and we hope you will attend the upcoming Congress. We also encourage you to submit abstracts, the presentation of which forms a major part of the meeting.

We all look forward to meeting you at the 17th EFORT Congress in the city of Geneva – a cosmopolitan city of humane dimensions in the heart of Europe.

Prof. Dr. Enric Cáceres - President EFORT 2015/16Prof. Alain Farron - President swiss orthopaedics 2014/2016
