The Great Debate 2014 @EFORT

The Great Debate is back in 2014 in a slightly different guise


As you may be aware, this year we are joining forces with the 15th EFORT Congress running the 4th – 6th June 2014 at London ExCEL. Embedded within the biggest orthopaedic conference in Europe, we are running two sessions within the main programme, in our usual style: topical, controversial and interactive with many debates.

The two sessions The Great Debate has been allocated are:

  • The Great Knee Debate – Thursday 5th June 09.00 – 10.30 (London Room)
  • The Great Hip Debate – Friday 6th June 15.00 – 16.30 (Munich Room)

We have made a few changes to make the most of the two sessions, comprising of four mini-topics and four debates each day. It will be fast paced, engaging and  bringing you the best the Great Debate has to offer.

The knee sessions will include the following; knees aren’t as good as hips, patient matched v;s conventional instrumentation, uni v’s bi-compartmental and the shape of the future – custom made devices or robots?

During the hips session you will have the chance to pose questions to the faculty about a number of thought provoking issues such as: to resurface or not to resurface, how long should stems be?, the best head size and approaches.

We have an exceptional faculty lined up with some of the best orthopaedic speakers  in Europe, reinforced with talent from the USA, and Australia. Some of the faculty will be familiar to you supporting us in previous years meetings, others are new and ready to fire up the debates on topics that will shape the future of orthopaedics.

If you want to come and have your say on hip and knee arthroplasty, or pose questions to the faculty during the debates, then please register to attend EFORT by following this link:
