New in '19 | Innovation Symposium

Wednesday, July 10
1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Fee: No Charge
Location: Rooms 202 and 203

Innovation in orthopedic sports medicine is well under way. It is exciting and can potentially have a huge impact on the athletes and active people that we care for. In this symposium, the most prolific dimensions of innovation will be discussed, and a sampling of some of the most promising and high-impact technologies will be presented.

Our patients benefit each day from medical innovations, which are the result of collaboration between physicians, scientists, engineers and the medical device industry. As such, we will move into a breakout session after the didactic presentations to talk with some of these individuals and to see and handle some of the most innovative technologies available.
