Reconstruction and Regeneration, not Replacement

DOWNING COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE

Reconstruction and Regeneration, not Replacement

We are delighted to be hosting the 6th Annual Biological Knee Society Meeting in Cambridge. The UK Biological Knee Society is a niche group of dedicated knee surgeons who are committed to furthering the science and practice of ‘biological knee reconstruction’.

The BKS programme is packed with updates as to the latest practice and results in areas such as biologics and ACL reconstruction and repair, with an overview and insight into industry’s latest products in key areas such as meniscal repair and articular cartilage defects. We also feature new advanced techniques and new products such as the use of lipogems and augmentation techniques for optimal patient outcomes in knee surgery.

Along with meeting at Downing College, Cambridge, we also have the opportunity for delegates to reserve a session in a cadaveric lab to try new techniques with advice on hand from experienced faculty.

The meeting also provides information and a forum for discussion in areas such as PROMs, consent and software packages.

This meeting is open to all knee surgeons and affiliated healthcare practitioners with an interest in the latest and best surgical treatment options for knee reconstruction.

Accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England for up to 9 CPD points
