ICRS Focus Meeting, Zurich 2017- Osteoarthritis in Athletes

The ICRS is proud to offer another Focus Meeting in September 2017 in beautiful Zurich, Switzerland. It is in the center of Europe and thus easy to reach for everybody.

In September, Zurich is presenting itself very nicely with warm temperatures of the lake and still summerlike days. The focus of that meeting will be "Osteoarthritis in the Athlete". A topic that everybody is and will be confronted with more and more in the future. As our population is being increasingly demanding and involved in more sporting activity than ever the rate of trauma and therefore degeneration is logically increasing as well. "I have mild pain. You have mild arthritis. I want to do sports like ever before." That would be a typical "communication" between physician and surgeon. The treating doctor as to be optimally equipped with knowledge and instruments to treat this collective of patients.In September, Zurich is presenting itself very nicely with warm temperatures of the lake and still summerlike days.

During the meeting, we will look at all major joints that are typically affected: hip, knee and ankle. Mostly clinical topics (conservative and operative) will be added by some basic scientists that will give insight what is coming from the bench such as MSC application, biomarkers, distraction, novel MR imaging methods and intra-articular medication…
