It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 78th Congress of the Hellenic Association of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology, which will take place from 12 to 15 October 2022 at the Megaron Athens International Conference Center
Having left behind the unprecedentedly difficult conditions that have prevailed over the last two years and have influenced all scientific activities, we aim to organize an excellent scientific congress focusing to returning to face-to-face interaction and continuing the educational tradition of our Association.
Distinguished colleagues from Greece and abroad have been invited to the conference and we will be honored with their presence, while the scientific program includes, among others, the established EFORT Forum, the active participation of ESSKA and the European Hip Society and for the first time this year, will take place the International Orthopedic Trauma Association Forum. The Conference will also be actively attended by the Israeli Orthopedic Association as well as the Balkan Foot and Ankle Society as officially invited scientific companies.
In the same context and until the completion of the scientific program, I invite you to follow the relevant announcements and stay informed about the innovations that our Congress will introduce this year!
Athanasios Ch. Badekas
President of the Hellenic Αssociation of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology
