Event details

In cooperation with OPED we have outlined an outstanding program about the therapy of achilles tendon ruptures. Be keen for an introduction of the latest operative treatment options for achilles tendon repairs as well as for a high-quality discussion on early vs. late dynamic postoperative treatment. As usual, the live session will be highly interactive - participate in our live voting and ask your most burning questions to our top-class experts. Enjoy a practice-oriented event featuring live talks and exciting video insights on state-of-the-art treatment of achilles tendon ruptures.

The online training is designed for specialists in orthopedic and trauma surgery, sports medicine and rehabilitation, as well as physiotherapists and general practitioners.

I will learn to
  • Understand the technical details of percutaneous achilles tendon repair
  • Evaluate the indication for a minimal invasive or open approach to achilles tendon repair
  • Choose the correct patients for an early dynamic treatment postoperative after achilles tendon repair
  • Deepen the understanding of modern rehabilitation after achilles tendon ruptures
