Dear friends & colleagues,

Reha Tandogan

Building upon the success of the 2019 Madrid Specialty Days, ESSKA – EKA (European Knee Associates) Section of ESSKA has planned an exciting scientific programme for the 2023 Specialty Days in Warsaw. Our main theme will be “Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Digital Tools in Knee Surgery”.

The last few years have seen tremendous progress in digital aids in surgery and these will have a significant impact on our practice. Join us in Warsaw as we discuss these hot topics with international experts and keep abreast of these exciting developments in our field.

Together with our scientific chairs Bruno Violante, Pawel Skowronek and Steffen Schröter, we have prepared a wonderful programme with symposia, hot topic debates and highlight lectures covering a wide range of topics on knee osteotomies and joint replacement. We are also happy to announce the French Society of Hip & Knee (SFHG) as our guest society for 2023. This event will also be a great opportunity to network, meet old friends and make new ones.

Please join us in Warsaw if you want to be on the cutting edge of degenerative knee surgery.
