Dear Colleagues. 

The Shoulder & Elbow Surgery Section of the Hellenic Association of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology (HAOST) is organizing its 5th Symposium on 5 and 6 April, 2019.

The Symposium will take place at the Medical School of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece.

The scientific program focuses on hot topics on rotator cuff tears, anterior instability and arthroplasty on glenohumeral arthrosis.

International and Greek experts will present current concepts on various topics, discuss on difficult cases and participate in debates. It is a great opportunity for the experienced orthopaedics to share knowledge and innovation, while the younger orthopaedic surgeons can attend a high-level symposium at the same time.

A dry-lab workshop will take place at the Laboratory of Anatomy of the Medical School on 5 April, which will focus on shoulder arthroscopic techniques.

Our wish is that all participants will expand their knowledge and exchange ideas with their peers and experts. We would like to invite you to actively participate in this highly didactic event gathering all those interested in shoulder surgery.

Emmanouil Fandridis

President of the Executive committee of the

Shoulder & Elbow Surgery Section, HAOST
