In cooperation with the Balgrist University Hospital, we are excited to present a high-caliber online live broadcast from the popular “Balgrist International Shoulder Course" which will take place in Zurich from 29 September to 1 October 2022. Under the scientific guidance of Dr. Karl Wieser, the three-day course will focus on "Rotator Cuff Disorders” and cover the entire spectrum of rotator cuff tears, from etiology to arthroscopic RC repair techniques, from basic science aspects to tendon transfers and from augmented repairs to the latest developments in reverse shoulder arthroplasty.

Tune in live from wherever you are and enjoy a first-class program featuring an international faculty of world renowned shoulder surgeons, who will present their latest research, perform live surgeries, and share their knowledge in interactive case discussions.

Live Certification:
The Balgrist International Shoulder Course has been accredited with 16 CME credits by the Swiss Orthopedics. Watch the live broadcast online and earn your credits conveniently from home. Important: The certification will only be available for LIVE attendance on the days of the event.
