OsteoMed takes pride in our research and participation in upper-level medical and technology conferences worldwide. Continual participation at these events keeps us at the cutting edge of medical science, so that we can develop the best medical technologies to advance the state of the discipline while providing practical solutions for real-world surgical environments.
OsteoMed’s 2015 Plans
Here’s a sampling of this year’s planned events worldwide—from Peru to Milan to China, OsteoMed goes to the ends of the earth in pursuit of the best in medical knowledge.
|Event||Event Dates||Event Location|
|EFFORT||May 27 – 29, 2015||Prague, Czech Republic|
|FESSH||June 17 – 20, 2015||Milan, Italy|
|EUROSPINE||September 2 – 4, 2015||Copenhagen, Denmark|

|ICFNS||October (TBD)||Nanjing, China|
EFORT: The European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology hosts this year’s congress in Prague. Sessions in General Orthopedics, Upper and Lower Limb extremities, Musculoskeletal Tumors, and Musculoskeletal Infections—as well as Spine, Traumas, and Pediatrics—comprise this year’s offerings, which are focused primarily around issues of infection in orthopaedics. At OsteoMed, we seek to minimize the risk of infection during and after surgery, so we look forward to exploring the state of the industry at EFFORT.
FESSH: The Federation of European Societies for Surgeries of the Hand hosts its annual conference this year in Milan. The conference offers a range of discussions and instructional topics on hand surgery, from open and arthroscopic techniques to tissue reengineering and regenerative surgeries. Our upper extremity offerings are a perfect fit at FESSH.
EUROSPINE: Eurospine is Europe’s society for spinal surgeons and physicians. Their annual conference focuses on improving treatments for a range of spinal conditions and on improving surgical techniques and outcomes for spinal patients. Abstract submissions are still open for this year’s Eurospine Conference in Copenhagen in September, so stay tuned for more about the upcoming 2015 conference.
ICOMS: The International Conference on Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery will be held this year in Melbourne, Australia. The preliminary program shows a mix of “regional sessions” (for surgeons from North America or Asia, for example); symposia (on TMJ and pediatric surgery, for example); and free papers that will be determined by acceptance of submitted abstracts.
ICFNS: The 7th Academic Congress of International Chinese Neurosciences is hosted this year in Nanjing, China. Chinese neurologists and neurosurgeons will be welcoming medical professionals from around the world to this prestigious event. Topics will include discussions on nursing in neurosurgery, stereotactic and functional neurosurgery, neuroendoscopy, and translational medicine.
We look forward to attending these events and bringing new knowledge back to OsteoMed’s development of ever-better medical and surgical technologies.
