Dear Colleagues,

It´s a great pleasure to announce our EHS Webinars 2024: “New frontiers & New Technologies in Hip Surgery”. This project is a new step from the EHS Webinars organized last year under the amazing coordination of Dr Jean-Alain Epinette, EHS Past President. It’s a tremendous honour and responsibility to continue his legacy and although the bar is very high, I hope I could reach your expectations with this new format.

The structure will be a 90-minute webinar with an initial section of Lectures as an update about one controversial topic related to the main theme of each session. This will be followed by a Cross-fire discussion of a hot topic and the final block will focus on a Case Presentation. The webinar will be very interactive and practical and our audience will participate with polls and questions through the live chat.

I kindly invite all of you to join us on Thursday 30th May from 17:00-18:30 (CET)

Our main topic is Hip Trauma Surgery (pelvic & acetabular fractures, proximal femoral fractures and periprosthetic fractures) and our confirmed speakers are:-

  • Mr Syed Ahmed (UK)
  • Prof Johannes Bastian (Sweden)
  • Prof Maziar Mohaddes (Switzerland)
  • Dr Ramesh Sen (India)
  • Prof Eleftherios Tsiridis (Greece)
  • Prof Luigi Zagra (Italy)

Registration is free and will open soon on the EHS website (we will email all members). Let´s meet virtually in one moth for a fun evening!
