First Call

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to inform you that the Hungarian Arthroscopy and Sports Surgery Association – in cooperation with the Hungarian Society of Sports Medicine and Hungarian Association for Physiotherapy – will organize the joint meetings of the 1st International Postgraduate Course on Sports Surgery and the 16th Congress of the Hungarian Arthroscopy and Sport Surgery Association which will be held in Balatonalmádi, Hungary between 11-13 April 2024.

Our intention is to rely on our experiences gained by the organization and the success of previous international congresses and symposiums. Several acknowledged speakers have accepted our invitation to the Congress both from Hungary and abroad. Former leaders of ESSKA (prof. Lars Engebretsen, prof. Niek van Dijk) and Leaders of the Turkish Arthroscopy Society (TUSYAD) will also be participating.

Topics of the lectures held by our national and international invited speakers will include the latest updates on arthroscopic surgical solutions of the different joints. In addition, a course organized for physiotherapists and theatre nurses will also help improve their skills to ensure the best quality of patients’ care.

Counting on your active participation we kindly request you to save the date of the meeting.

Sincerely,

András Tállay 
Congress Chair
President of the Hungarian Arthroscopy Association
