Welcome to Athens Shoulder Course!
A course that is open to everyone; orthopaedic surgeons, residents, fellows, physiotherapists, with a special interest to the Shoulder. This 4-day course includes lectures by leading shoulder surgeons from all over the world on all hot topics and controversies related to both open and arthroscopic shoulder surgery.
Adding live and relive surgeries, technical videos, debates, mini-battles, interactive challenges and workshops, we are having a 360 degrees approach to shoulder pathology, management and rehabilitation. Moreover by practicing, preselected by each participant, modern, cutting-edge techniques on cadaver specimens, the educational experience is completed.
We do expect all participants to get familiar with the indications of all methods used, to learn the tips and tricks of how to do it right and then perform each technique under expert guidance.
Our ultimate goal is to bring in contact orthopaedic surgeons from all over the world in order to share their knowledge and experience, to discover common pathways, innovative ideas and creative solutions to common everyday problems. In addition, we establish a common language and communication with our physiotherapists, explaining the modern surgical techniques whilst learning from them the art of rehabilitation. Teaching and being taught, we can improve our results considering our common aim: our patients’ return to an active and fulfilling life.
