2024 Meeting Overview

Overview
This is the 17th time this historic meeting has been held. It was started by Robin Allum FRCS in 1992 in an era when the evolution of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction had just gone from being a largely open procedure to being an all arthroscopic technique.

Course aim
It began with just a handful of surgeons but over the years the meeting has grown to gain an international reputation. It is an essential update for all surgeons with an interest in soft tissue knee surgery. The focus is a practical approach to knee ligament surgery looking at the latest techniques to repair or reconstruct injured knees in all groups of patients from the recreational sportsperson through to the professional elite athlete.

Who should attend
Consultants with a specialist interest in soft tissue knee surgery.
Registrars who are considering a career in knee surgery – traditionally this has been an excellent opportunity for networking in thisfield including considering fellowship options.
Physiotherapists with an interest in sports injuries to the knee and rehabilitation of athletes of all levels from the elite to the recreational.

Course Accreditation


The course will be accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and CPD will be applied for.
