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

Melbourne, Australia

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.

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!


Peter Choong

AOA President

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.
