The Workshop will be hosted at the Athens University Medical School Physiology Auditorium on 8 February.

As noted by the Chairman of the Athens Shoulder Course, Mr Emmanouil Antonogiannakis, Orthopedic Specialist and Director of the HYGEIA Hospital 3rd Orthopedic Clinic, “To promote orthopedic science and the art of surgery, you ought to exchange views with your colleagues, share your experience, seek the best solutions for your patients’ problems and transfer your knowledge to the younger colleagues, so they may apply the most modern practices effectively.

We are extremely fortunate to have all these distinguished scientists visit Greece, at a time when Orthopedics are changing at lightning speed due to their interaction with the advancements in technology.”

On his part, the Chairman of the ASC Organizing and Scientific Committee, Mr Emmanouil Brilakis, Orthopedic Specialist and Associate Director of the HYGEIA Hospital 3rd Orthopedic Clinic, noted, “This year’s effort aims to bring together experienced orthopedic specialists from around the globe, so they may share their knowledge, experience and concerns. It also aims to establish a common code with physiotherapists, by explaining to them the modern surgical techniques and learning from them the latest developments in rehabilitation. The high attendance rewards and renews our efforts.”
