The Belgian city of Bruges will welcome the 3rd edition of the Partial Knee Meeting, 25-26 January, which will see 300 knee surgeons from around the globe attend the conference at the Provincial Court on the market square.
The Partial Knee Meeting will discuss the partial replacement of worn-out or arthritic knee joints. Traditionally, knee replacement surgery resorts to the implantation of total knee prostheses.
The procedure allows both cruciate ligaments to be spared, which leads to better knee stability. The procedure is also less invasive for the patient and for a faster recovery.
“It is our great honour to organise this fabulous meeting in Bruges”, says professor Dr Emmanuel Thienpont, at Cliniques universitaires Saint Luc-UCL, Brussels. “We’ll have the best partial knee surgeons from all over the world gathering in Bruges. The city offers culture, history and accommodation of the highest level.
“The help we received from the professional team of Meeting in Brugge was the icing on the cake. Their experience and insights made the organisation of this event run smoother and faster. We are already thinking about planning the next edition in Bruges, too.”
“Bruges has so much to offer for medical conferences, with all the medical heritage in our city,” says Sarah Cornand, sales manager of Meeting in Brugge. “We’re very excited professor Dr Emmanuel Thienpont chose Bruges as the destination for the Partial Knee Meeting.”
Meeting in Brugge is the city’s official convention bureau.
