President's Letters

The British Hip Society and the Società Italiana dell’Anca will hold their first combined meeting on 26-27 November 2015 in Milan. To our knowledge, it will be the very first time that two distinguished national speciality societies have integrated to organize a joint Congress that will combine their traditions, current practices and future clinical and research trajectories.

By sharing experiences in both primary and revision hip arthroplasty, discussing different techniques (bony fixation, tribology and more), examining the results of hip preserving surgery and arthroscopy, or simply considering everything about the hip, it will be a unique opportunity to improve surgical skills and understand current state of the art clinical practice.

Symposia, instructional courses, and cross fires including interactive discussions with experiencedsurgeons both from Italy and UK will challenge and educate the participants. Several sessions will be dedicated to free paper oral presentations with dedicated space for trainee/resident presentations and for posters.

The Congress is open to members, non-members, international attendees and all who are interested in the hip.

The official language of the meeting will be English, simultaneous translation to Italian will be provided.

We look forward to meeting you in Milan.
