ESSKA-ESA brings together shoulder surgeons. This European pool of expertise aims to:

  • share with like-minded practitioners
  • undertake scientific research
  • provide training, through practical courses and publications
  • make shoulder surgery both better and easier


Dear ESSKA – ESA Members, Dear ESSKA Members, Dear friends!

ESSKA – ESA (European Shoulder Associates Section) has the pleasure and privilege to invite you all to join the ESSKA Speciality Days in Warsaw 24.-25 November 2023,

Four years after the successful meeting launch in Madrid in 2019,

ESSKA is thrilled to be holding the second edition of this unique event where all five of ESSKA’s specialised Sections will present up-to-date scientific programmes designed to meet the educational and knowledge needs of the participants in an interesting and engaging format and all under one roof!

The title of the ESA programme in Warsaw will be Innovations in cuff repair. From mechanical to biological augmentation. How can we best enhance the healing potential? Is there something new that we can offer our patients in 2023? We truly believe that the answer is ‘yes’ and that we can learn from the experts in the field.

An advanced scientific programme, interactive sessions, hot-topic-debates, and a friendly environment is an excellent recipe to make the Speciality Days a truly valuable and memorable experience.

Discussions will reflect the clinicians’ dilemmas and patients’ needs in our everyday clinical practice. More than understanding this condition as unified, our thoughts go to the broad spectrum of rotator cuff diseases and personalised adapted approach to the management. We hope that this meeting will give you important scientific basis for the decisions which will be beneficial for your patients.

The important cornerstones of this meeting are education and networking, strengthening our friendships and building new ones. We will do our very best to boost new initiatives and ideas and create the most exciting and pleasant atmosphere!

So please join us!

We look forward to seeing you in Warsaw!

Kind regards,



Berte Bøe
