Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

On behalf the BVOT and the SORBCOT we are pleased to announce that the Orthopaedica Belgica Fall Course 2018 will be organised on November 24, 2018 in the very beautiful theatre of the Hotel Plaza in the centre of Brussels. The Course will be given in English.

As you know, this meeting is aimed for trainees as well as for senior members of the BVOT and the SORBCOT.

We thought about a theme that is perhaps less usual but that seems to be fundamental in a formation, especially since new treatment techniques have emerged and certainly require a scientific approach :

Advances in Basic Science and Biological Treatments in Orthopaedics and Traumatology

Topics that will be addressed include:

  • Biomechanics
  • Biomaterials
  • Bioengeneering : CAOS, 3D imaging, virtual reality
  • Bone and Joint Biology
  • Biological Treatments :  Hyaluronic acid, PRP, stem cell, Bone morphogenetics proteins, natural or synthetic bone substitutes

We also want to give the opportunity to the ABAOT and the BOTRA to present some free communications competing for a prize.

We hope to meeting you there on Saturday 24 November!

David Zorman (Sorbcot President) – Guy Molenaers (BVOT President)
