Dr. Andrea Fontana


 

 

Dear colleagues

 

I am pleased to announce the Hip Cartilage Course (The AMIC Technique) that will be held in Como, Italy, from the 15-16th September 2017.

The Hip Cartilage Course is completely focused on hip chondral lesions, from their anatomical and histological characterization to the treatment options. This is a special international forum for attendees to share scientific information and learn about the latest advances on this field. The one and half day course includes lectures from the major specialists in hip preservation surgery. Specific and innovative topics, such as Hip Mapping System, Cartilage defects and Femoro Acetabular Impingement classification, are described and discussed in an interactive way. 3 relive surgeries are scheduled to show the application of the AMIC technique for the treatment of acetabular chondral lesions.

The main goal of the Hip Cartilage Course (The AMIC Technique), is to give the attendees the best update on diagnosis, clinical evaluation and treatment of hip chondral lesions.

I look forward to seeing you in Como.

With my best wishes

Dr. Andrea Fontana
