Whether in the clinic or surgery, operating room or research laboratory, rehabilitation clinic or ambulance service: Orthopedics and trauma surgery stand for a professionally competent treatment of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. This year's congress motto We are O & U addresses the diversity and the wide spectrum of our common subject. No other congress in Europe offers orthopedists and accident surgeons a greater platform for professional, collegial and scientific exchange than the DKOU 2018.
Ten years after the founding of the German Society for Orthopedics and Traumatology (DGOU) , the congress is the trademark for the successful integration of orthopedics and trauma surgery in Germany. Outstanding examples of the efficiency of our work are the nationwide trauma network and the endoprosthesis register , which could be realized through the individual commitment of many individuals and the untiring work of our specialist societies.
As a current challenge we see digitization in O & U. Smart implants, wearables and big data applications have the potential to revolutionize our therapeutic possibilities and are a great opportunity for the future. On the other hand, the risks of digital process optimization and economization stand above all for the protection of the personal data of the patients entrusted to us. Here we are all challenged to help shape this dynamic development.
A significant threat to patient safety is implant-associated infections. They are serious complications and are increasingly caused by multi-drug resistant germs. Due to their high clinical relevance, we will address this issue as a focus topic and discuss measures for improved prevention as well as solution strategies for the treatment of overt infections.
The claim of the German Congress for Orthopedics and Traumatology was and is a high content quality both in the breadth of the subject as well as in the specialization and sub-specialization. Sections and cooperating societies will therefore be clearly visible in the congress program. Thus, the specialist representatives of the main topics spine, hand and wrist, arthroscopic surgery and sports medicine and rehabilitation special space for the presentation and discussion of the latest results of their scientific work is given. The participation of the host country Great Britain At the various focal point meetings, moreover, a cross-border scientific and professional exchange will be made, which will certainly benefit all participants.
We cordially invite you to participate in the German Congress of Orthopedics and Traumatology 2018 . Come to Berlin, discuss with us, actively shape our subject. Only together can it read: We are O & U
