4 November 2016  – Orthopaedic Knee Conference, Leeds

Challenging concepts of practice, innovation and evidence

4 November 2016

Royal Armouries, Leeds, UK

Orthopaedic consultants and industry experts will gather in Leeds in November for the second Orthopaedic Knee Conference, organised by Orthopaedic Product News.

Through keynote lectures, open panel debate and a lively trade exhibition, the meeting will tackle current trends and topics as well as raising issues relating to surgical concepts and innovations.

As concerns are raised within the industry that a registry which was designed to identify failing implants is now perhaps turning against the orthopaedic profession and damaging innovation, The Orthopaedic Knee Conference will address head-on areas that are often seen as contentious, to challenge both speakers and delegates.

Whether you’re an orthopaedic knee surgeon, medical professional, medical device manufacturer, or associated with another related field, this is an essential event for your diary. Book now to secure your place.
