Dear EHS Members,

I am delighted to welcome you to the 10th Anniversary MAST (Masterclass in Arthroplasty Surgery Thessaloniki) 15-17th December 2023: Current Concepts in Advanced Arthroplasty Surgery. Register now to this EHS co-organised event and be part of the largest arthroplasty meeting in Europe – you can also join us digitally.

Currently taking place in Madrid is the Osteoarticular Reconstructive Surgery congress (EHS patronage), organised by Dr Ana Cruz Pardos with a host of top EHS speakers and exciting topics. More info HERE.

“Hip Surgery – Frontiers between Reconstruction & Replacement” was the successful EHS & German Hip Society Session at DKOU in November – thanks to Prof Fares Haddad, EHS President Elect, and Prof Fritz Thorey, Nat Rep for Germany. EHS hopes to enjoy such dedicated symposia at all your National meetings in the future.

Our EHS Webinar on 12th December @ 19:30 CET is on Open Surgery for non-prosthetic Hip Diseases, with excellent talks by Prof Klaus Siebenrock, Ass Prof Mattia Loppini and Dr Rihard Trebše. Register HERE.

Dr Steffen Brodt, EHS member, is guest editor of JCM’s “State of the Art in Hip Replacement Surgery”. I hope many of you will submit articles and benefit from this excellent opportunity.

Thank you to all the budding hip surgeons who applied for our EHS Travelling Fellowship 2024 to Denmark! CVs will be scrutinised by our EduCom and announced in the New Year. Good luck to everyone.

And finally, we are happy to add Kosovo and Indonesia to our EHS member countries for the first time: from Prizren, we warmly welcome Full Member Dr Agron Mahmuti, and from Jakarta, Young Member Dr Mohammad Triadi Wijaya. Plus we are pleased to welcome Full Member Mr Sulaiman Alazzawi from UK and Young Member Dr Plamen Ivanov from Bulgaria.

On behalf of all the EHS ExCom, festive wishes to each and every member, old and new – I hope we all enjoy a good winter break with our loved ones.

Best regards,

Prof Eleftherios Tsiridis
EHS President 2023-2025
