Fares Haddad will report on what you still can do with a total hip replacement. Elvire Servien will represent the well-known French patellofemoral group. Nick van Dijk will speak about his current understanding of OD treatment and Floris Lafeber will inform us about functionality, technique and foremost outcome of joint distraction.

It will be a fully packed 2-day meeting covering all major topics when OA in the Athlete is regarded. We consider that the audience will be excited by the speaker line-up and topics.
