ATHENS, GREECE – JUNE 13-15, 2024

We are excited to announce an exclusive, specialized course on surgical techniques in orthoplastic fracture management, set to take place for the 3rd time in Athens, Greece. This intensive three-day program offers a unique opportunity for hands-on learning and professional development, with limited registration to ensure personalized instruction.

Participants will benefit from the expertise of renowned international instructors, brought together to provide a comprehensive educational experience.

The course is designed for surgeons interested in increasing their training and knowledge in:

  • Internal and External Fixation
  • Post-Traumatic Deformity Correction
  • Muscle Flap techniques
  • Orthoplastic Reconstruction

The course is divided into three key components:

  1. Operating Hall Participation: Over the first two days, registrants will engage in live surgical demonstrations, gaining invaluable insights into advanced techniques and procedures directly from the experts in the operating room.
  2. Interactive Lectures: Following the surgeries, attendees will participate in lectures that delve into pertinent topics, offering a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical application aligned with real-time surgical experiences.
  3. Hands-On Practice: The final day is dedicated to hands-on practice with fresh frozen specimens, allowing participants to refine their skills in a controlled, supervised environment.

This course is designed to foster a deep understanding providing both theoretical knowledge and practical skills essential for advancing orthopaedic practice.
