International Congress of Concepts and Innovations in Knee Surgery 2019

Kongress,  Öffentlich

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great honour and pleasure to invite you to the third edition of theAUVA’s “International Congress of Concepts and Innovations in Knee Surgery”, which will be held from 28th to the 29th of June 2019.


The congress has moved this time from Carinthia to Vienna for reasons of better international accessibility and therefore good and rapid access for our international speakers and congress participants.


Furthermore, Vienna is a worthwhile destination, rich of imperial treasures and cultural heritage.


The congress is held near the baroque Schönbrunn Palace at the Orangerie, which is its oldest palmhouse and was used for glittering court festivities.


The congress programme includes currently discussed topics from well treatable injuries, to difficult severe posttraumatic conditions up to salvage procedures, to methods aiming at saving the limb and part of ist function. For that, new techniques, new concepts and procedures are presented and this in a concise programme of two days. We were again successful in generating an excellent faculty for this event, who will provide you with the highest level of expertise, experience and contemporary Solutions.


This congress will be filled with life, enhanced through good personal talks and discussions. We are convinced that this congress will provide you with an overall update in terms of applying the new expertise into your daily practice.


We are also pleased to invite you to our special “Meet the Experts – Get-Together and Networking Dinner”, which will be an occasion for sharing our knowledge, for networking and making personal contacts, making this congress an unforgettable event.


Participate in the congress with its interactive and innovative programme.


It will enable you to take your knowledge to a higher level, not only by learning and sharing, but also by meeting renowned experts in the field of knee surgery.


We are looking forward to welcoming you all in Vienna in early summer.
