The New President of the EHS:
Prof Klaus Siebenrock MD

This is me

I’m very much honored to act as the new president of the prestigious EHS from 2021 to 2023!

My professional and scientific career was built up at the University Hospital for Orthopaedics and Traumatology at the University of Bern, Switzerland, the renown Mayo Clinic at Rochester, MN, USA and the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, CA, USA. In 2004, I was assigned Chairman and Director of the Department for Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology at the University of Bern, Switzerland.

Besides leadership my surgical practice and academic work focuses on hip surgery covering all fields from THA, an increasing number of complex THA revisions, hip traumatology and treatment of the painful young hip. Hip joint preservation surgery is a dominant domain in which my Department is regarded to be among the international leaders. Latest research and innovative surgical treatment modalities are presented and published (CORR©) in context with the Hip Symposium Bern every two years.

My publication list includes about 250 peer-reviewed papers ( Research grants are provided by the Swiss National Foundation or international grants. The most prestigious awards include Gold Paper Awards (EFORT) and the Pauwels Medal (German Orthopaedic Society (DGOU)) in 2016. I am an assigned active member in many committees (e.g., Swiss Orthopaedics, the national Societies for hips and tumors, the International Hip Society, EHS).

My goals as a president of the EHS are twofold. First, we should spread knowledge and promote academic work on the field of hip and pelvic disorders and treatment within Europe in order to become more visible in the entire world. Second, we need to intensify education and training of young hip surgeons. This should be done by fellowships at renown European hip centers, structured educational courses and a common curriculum in the future.
