Message from the Congress President

Dear Colleagues, Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic, for the XXV Triennial World Congress of the Société Internationale de Chirurgie Orthopédique et de Traumatologie (SICOT). This is the first time Prague has been chosen to host a SICOT meeting, but it ran a successful international conference in partnership with SICOT in 1988, even under the difficult conditions of Communist governance. Indeed, Prague has an important historical link with SICOT. Prof Jan Zahradníček from Prague was one of the founding members of SICOT, when it began in Paris on 10 October 1929.

The Czech Orthopaedic Society appreciates very much that the SICOT International Council, during the 2005 Congress at Istanbul, awarded the 2011 Triennial World Congress to Prague. I believe that the City of Prague's blend of architecture and culture, historic and modern, will inspire you and you will spend much time enjoying our city as well as our scientific programme. Our organising committee will do its best to make you feel very welcome in Prague. We will also give you a chance to get to know the Czech Republic which is a beautiful country.

Our main goal is to create a Scientific Programme covering all aspects of orthopaedic surgery and traumatology. We will invite the most influential current speakers to Prague and feature the most exciting topics of our time. An emphasis will be put on sharing information between East and West, as Prague appears to be, thanks to its location, ideal for this task.

We hope that the medical industry will be pleased with the location of Prague for the Congress, and having the chance to gain new client contacts. A large industry exhibition will bring a concentration of information, instruments, techniques and conversations on patient care, important to all participants.

Allow me to invite you to Prague. I personally and my colleagues from the Organising Committee are prepared to make your stay in Prague unforgettable.

With my best wishes,

Prof Tomáš Trč
Congress President
SICOT Vice President of Europe

SICOT Educational Day 2011

The SICOT Educational Day is a new initiative undertaken by the SICOT Young Surgeons Committee. The aim of this day is to provide a comprehensive review course for residents and an evidence-based update for practicing surgeons on a specific theme at each SICOT meeting. The theme is selected in such a way that it is mutually beneficial to the residents in their exams and to the orthopaedic surgeons in their daily practice.

The theme chosen for this year is 'The Hip'. Great teachers from around the world are being brought together to lecture on their area of expertise.
