Welcome message Vienna 2021
On behalf of the Executive Committee and the Science Committee, we would like to invite you to participate in the 22nd EFORT Annual Congress in Vienna, Austria from 30 June to 02 July 2021. We will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of EFORT and we are looking forward to sharing this special occasion with you.
The annual meeting of EFORT is the largest platform within European Orthopaedics and Traumatology for the exchange of knowledge and experiences within Europe, but also with colleagues from other parts of the world. To celebrate this anniversary, the Science and Education Committees have created an exceptional programme for both young and experienced delegates, covering important and hot topics ranging from basic research to the daily practice of orthopaedics and trauma.
The main theme of the Congress in Vienna will be “Sustainable Professional Practice” and we will provide innovative sessions on green orthopaedics, mental health and value-based healthcare. Additional highlights are patient and implant safety, new registry data, the latest surgical techniques as well as quality improvement, just to mention a few.
The format of the meeting will encourage interaction between participants with Symposia, Instructional Lectures and Interactive Expert Exchange sessions given by distinguished speakers from all over Europe. Other sessions will include Complex Case Discussion sessions, the Full-Day course in Total Hip & Total Knee Replacement as well as Free Papers and Clinical Cases submissions from all over the world.
The Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Association (APOA) have accepted our invitation to be the ‘Invited Nation’ at our 22nd EFORT Congress and we are delighted that the APOA will further enhance the scientific and educational quality. Furthermore, traditionally, two highly renowned orthopaedic surgeons will deliver the Michael Freeman and Erwin Morscher Honorary Lectures.
As we were unfortunately unable to visit Vienna in 2020, we are preparing an inspiring programme for 2021 in this magnificent city and are highly optimistic that we will be able to safely meet again personally after prolonged pandemic-related restrictions. There is nothing to beat social contact and physical networking, therefore we are looking forward to meeting you and sharing the highest quality scientific contributions as well as the professional and social exchanges this magnificent city will foster during the 22nd EFORT Congress in 2021.
