The future of orthopaedics – the combined 61th NOF Congress and NOV Jaarcongres

Keep an eye on this page or sign up for the newsletter for more updates about the program.

Medicine, particularly orthopaedics, is changing due to the introduction of new techniques and use of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Therefore the future is now and this was chosen as the theme for the combined 61th NOF Congress and NOV Jaarcongres.

During the three congress days various topics regarding the future of orthopedics will be presented. A broad and interesting program has been composed and goes from diversity to green orthopedics and from trauma care to advanced elective regenerative orthopeadics. Special attention will be given for resident sessions since they are the future of orthopeadics.
