Dear colleagues!

Three years have passed since the previous Congress in Kyiv.

Uniqueness and significance of the next Congress is determined by the fact that for the first time since independence, it will be held in the west of Ukraine. This is an exceptional opportunity for specialists to expand their professional experience and improve their knowledge. Clinical and scientific achievements of traumatology and orthopedic surgery, since the previous congress, should become the subject of a broad discussion, which is definitely necessary for the further development of our speciality.

Congress is organized by Ukrainian public organization "Ukrainian Association of Orthopedic Surgeons" with participation and support of National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine, Ministry of Health of Ukraine, Department of Health of Ivano-Frankivsk Region State Administration and Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University.

It is planned to hold plenary sessions, where topical issues and new technological solutions in our field will be discussed. New clinical guidelines on current issues of orthopedic surgery and traumatology will be discussed and approved. Congress will feature lectures by leading foreign and Ukrainian experts on complex and unresolved issues of traumatology and orthopedic surgery and new therapeutic technologies. In addition to scientific and practical reports, it is planned to conduct instructional courses on the most interesting topics of our speciality.

We are waiting for you in Ivano-Frankivsk, the historic, beautiful and hospitable city of Ukraine.
