Dear colleagues and friends,

The 1st Orthopaedic Department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) of “G. Papanikolaou” General Hospital in cooperation with the Orthopaedic and Traumatology Assosiation of Makedonia and Thrace would like to invite you to the seminar entitled “3rd Seminar of Tendon Transfers of the upper limb on fresh cadaveric specimens”. The seminar will take place on 2-4 February 2017 in Thessaloniki for the third consecutive time.

Thanks to your support the last two years, our efforts to establish the Seminar as an annual educational institution, despite the sharp economic downturn in the country which has an impact on all our activities, seem to be proven fruitful. Hopefully, anticipating your active participation this year too, we have the ambition to organize an equally major scientific event.

This year, in an effort to keep up with the international medical developments in surgery of the upper extremity, the “1stCourse in Elbow Arthroscopy on fresh cadaveric specimens” will also be organized, which will precede the tendon transfers seminar and it will take place on February 1, 2017, Wednesday.

The scientific program of both the «3rd Seminar of Upper Limb Tendon Transfer with fresh frozen cadaveric workshop» and the “1st Course in Elbow Arthroscopy on fresh cadaveric specimens” and the educational program on fresh frozen cadaveric speciments will take place at the Laboratory of Anatomy Descriptive AUTH.
