Preliminary Programme

Preliminary Programme

The ICRS Summit Miami 2021 will focus on Joint Preservation for our young active patients who wish to have an active lifestyle and preserve their native joints. The intent of the Summit is to renew and encourage young surgeons to treat their patients with the surgical techniques that have been developed over the past 20 years in cartilage repair with the management of background factors, that will result in successful and positive outcomes for our patients.
