Date
The pre-course will take place on Tuesday, 11 June 2024 at the WTC Rotterdam, prior to the congress.

Introduction
This course enhances knowledge and skills of traumatic and non-traumatic disorders of the knee and hip including cartilage regeneration techniques, ORIF, joint preserving osteotomies and arthroplasty. Special attention will be paid to future developments and techniques during each session. Participants will perform hands- on practical exercises during workshop rounds in small groups.

Participants
Orthopaedic residents, fellow orthopaedic surgeons, PhD students
