Next Hip Symposium Bern: April 20-22, 2023

Due to the ongoing uncertainties in the further development of the crisis with the corona virus and its mutants, we decided to postpone the Hip Symposium Bern from 2022 to 2023. To us the Hip Symposium Bern represents a very personal meeting of hip experts who get their inspirations from direct face-to-face interaction. In order to ensure optimal exchange of ideas and stimulating discussions, we refrain from holding a virtual conference.

We look forward to set up the Hip Symposium Bern in April 2023 from 20th to 22nd, with hopefully physical presence of the faculty and most of the participants.




Impressions of the Hip Symposium Bern 2020

Prof. K. A. SiebenrockThe last Hip Symposium Bern took place from February 27 – 29, 2020. Despite the impending global Corona crisis we were more than happy to have reached the highest number of participants for the Symposium ever (267 participants). Lucky enough the Symposium just ended two days before the official shutdown for scientific meetings in Switzerland. All faculty members and participants could return home safely.

There was a most highly ranked international faculty of 30 dedicated specialists. New insights were gained about hip instability, hip dysplasia and surgical techniques and results for hip joint preservation. In addition there has been future guided presentations addressing the questions whether we can create living joints and how digital tools may influence hip surgery tomorrow. The guest of honor was Michael B. Millis from Harvard University in Boston, USA. Professor M. Millis is one of the most outstanding experts worldwide in the field of hip joint surgery. He summarized his life-time experience in his lecture: "Hipology 2020: Science, Philosophy and Craft". The Symposium included one live surgery from Bern (reversed periacetabular osteotomy). A video commented surgery (anterior THA in DDH) transmitted from the Rothman Institute (Philadelphia, USA) was commented by J. Parvizi.

Lively and controversial case discussions among the faculty members were well received by the audience. 

All presentations were video-recorded and can be followed on our website. In addition, videos of the live surgery and case discussions are available on the website. You are also welcome to watch media impressions from the meeting and social Event.

The next Hip Symposium Bern will take place April 20-22, 2023. We would be happy to welcome you as a participant in Bern.
