Dear experts and friends, this year the 8th edition of the international congress entitled: “Rome International Shoulder Course: the experts question themselves” has reached an incredible scientific level; more than 50 shoulder experts, from all the continents, will meet in Rome on next 6 and 7 December 2024.

The Scientific Committee composed of the President of the International Board of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery (IBSES), 3 Past Presidents of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES), the President of the Korean Shoulder and Elbow Society (KSES), the Past President of the 15th International Congress of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery (ICSES) and the President of the next 16th ICSES, has created a unique format for the international scene: the invited speakers have chosen the topic of their own presentation since it represents a milestone of their scientific production. Each speaker will have 8 minutes available. Following the oral presentation, a 12 minutes of high scientific level debate will be animated by the speaker and two moderators.

Two live cad-lab sessions on difficult shoulder cases (Complex revision shoulder arthroplasty; massive rotator cuff tear) will be held in the prestigious Dissecting Room of the Department of Anatomy of the Sapienza University. Six instructional courses, lunch workshops, round tables and interviews will enrich each congress day.

Two parallel events will also be held during the congress days: – the 2nd Edition of the “Shoulder rehabilitation: what the experts say” and – the 1st Edition of the “Shoulder Ultrasound Course”.

The Congress will take place in the Parco dei Principi Hotel; the prestigious venue, located in the heart of Rome, in the Via Veneto area of the famous director Federico Fellini, is characterized by large conference and exhibition spaces and will be ready to welcome over 700 participants and 40 companies.

Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy these two high-level scientific days with us…and to breathe a Christmas atmosphere in the Eternal City.

The Chairman of the VIII Ed. of the Rome International Shoulder Course: the experts question themselves.
