Orthopaedic Advances in the 21st Century – What’s the Evidence?

Melbourne, Australia

The backdrop for this exciting meeting is Melbourne itself, the World’s most liveable city! The convening committee of Tony Dunin, Kate Lyons, Di Tymms, Sally Owen and Dirk van Bavel have done a tremendous job to showcase Melbourne with daily activities and official functions, that span our rivers, wineries, golf courses and nightlife.


I hope you will take this opportunity to pencil the dates into your diary and join us with your family in Melbourne.


Welcome to Melbourne!

12-16 October 2014


Welcome to the 74th 2014 Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australian Orthoapedic Association. This promises to be a very special convention organised expertly by your Scientific Secretary, Allan Wang. The theme “Orthopaedic Advances in the 21st Century – What’s the evidence” is designed to challenge our understanding of the things we do each day and to stimulate discussion around the sustainability and impact of future orthopaedics. Luminaries in research, education, and surgical technique will inform our discussions and hopefully inspire a reflection on our current and future practice of orthopaedic surgery.
