Ladies and Gentlemen,
Over the last decade, we have been observing increased physical activity among young and middle-aged people. That positive phenomenon is often associated with problems such as injuries and subsequent joint conditions. In order to be able to back to one’s passion, active people seek help of orthopaedic surgeons and physiotherapists, who frequently present very different therapeutic concepts to them.
In between physiotherapeutic/pharmacological therapy and orthopaedic surgery, there has recently developed an intermediary discipline of “REGENERATIVE MEDICINE.” The field gives patients new hope for painless recovery of function together with reconstruction of the damaged structures with the use of stem cells, growth factors, and other biologics. Unfortunately, the actual possibilities of regenerative medicine are overestimated just as often as they are underestimated.
This year’s Conference, prepared by two centres that specialize in the treatment of locomotion system, is aimed at presenting novel treatment methods for knee and ankle injuries, with reference made to diagnostic and therapeutic recommendations. We kindly invite you to listen to the opinions of highly-experienced specialists from Poland and abroad.
We would like to make a joint attempt at determining the boundaries of efficacious physiotherapeutic, pharmacological, biological and surgical treatment, depending on the patient’s age and physical activity. An important aspect of the conference will be the live
transmissions of surgeries performed in our centres, presenting the potential of contemporary surgical treatment of the joints.
We cordially invite you to Krakow.
On behalf of the organization committee:
