We have the pleasure of inviting you to the Nice Shoulder Course 2018 – an international 3-day shoulder course covering arthroscopic and prosthetic surgery from May 31 to June 2, 2018. This course, which is intended to be both theoretical and practical, will be held at the Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée – a famous site facing the Sea on the Promenade des Anglais in the centre of Nice. About 950 participants are expected to attend; the official language will be English.
Topics will address all facets of shoulder surgery. The program includes lectures by leading shoulder surgeons, ultrasound workshop, knot tying workshop, round table discussions, live surgery sessions and workshops on specimens and plastic models.
At the end of each session, time for discussion will be allocated and a case will be presented. Audience participation will be solicited, followed by a vote in hopes of reaching a consensus.
This year we will have a special feature: on June 2, the whole day will be dedicated to “The Young Arthritic Shoulder”.
The principle of this course is to treat large subjects and to open the way for a free exchange of ideas between “shoulder surgery experts” and the audience on concepts based on their experience, without neglecting scientific evidence. We look forward to welcoming you in Nice soon.
