The Eurasian Orthopaedic Forum (EOF) is Eurasia’s largest event related to orthopaedics, trauma and healthcare economics, and the first major offline event to take place after the quarantine restrictions have been lifted.
The Forum will bring together 5,000 civilian and military medical specialists from the CIS, Asia-Pacific, South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and America. Among the attendees are also specialists in the field of biotechnology, manufacturing of medical devices, pharmacists, and representatives of healthcare economics.
In 2021, the EOF is linked to two landmark events, the 100th anniversary of the N.N. Priorov National Medical Trauma and Orthopedics Research Center (CITO) and the 100th anniversary of the doctor G.A. Ilizarov. The prominent surgeon G.A. Ilizarov and the CITO, one of the world’s leading clinics, both contributed greatly to the formation of the scientific and practical school of traumatology and orthopaedics in Eurasia.
The EOF-2021 scientific agenda spans 11 areas. Nine Forum halls will host discussions on arthroscopy and shoulder endoprosthetics, degenerative diseases and endoprosthetics of large joints, hand and foot surgery, microsurgery for trauma surgeons and orthopedists, application of biotechnologies and 3D printing in traumatology and orthopedics, problems related to bone pathology, and infections in traumatology and orthopaedics. The list of activities includes a
Russian-Japanese conference on spine surgery.
In addition, the East European Sarcoma Group (EESG) Forum has been integrated into the EOF-2021 programme, along with the sections of three largest global professional communities: AO Trauma, the International Association of Trauma Surgeons; AO Spine, the International Association of Spine Surgeons; and ASAMI, the Association for the Study and Application of
Methods of Ilizarov.
The issues of medication-assisted treatment in traumatology and orthopaedics will be discussed at the Pharmcongress to be held within the EOF framework. The Business Forum, that is part of the EOF agenda, addresses the formation of the modern-day industry of evidence-based medical technologies, development of the medical industry, effective interaction between the medical community and vendors, issues related to availability of sufficient numbers of medical
professionals in the industry, and the legal aspects of telemedicine in trauma treatment.
The Eurasian Orthopaedic Forum will be accompanied by a large-scale exhibition, showcasing more than 200 Russian and foreign exhibitors on 15,000 m 2 of exhibition space at Skolkovo Technopark.
