Dear Sir/Madam,

We would cordially like to invite you to the 4th Joint Preservation Congress which will be held on 14-16 September 2017 at the Sofitel Victoria Hotel in Warsaw.

The Congress will focus on the treatment of early degenerative lesions in the knee joint. The discussion will centre on preventive treatment connected with the application of knee joint surgical techniques, which reduce the risk of future degenerative process. This year, we would like to draw particular attention to the application of modern methods based on minimally invasive surgical techniques, biotechnology and stem cell transplants.

The early treatment after a knee injury is critical and extremely challenging due to changing technical solutions and therapeutic views. However, its results have an impact on the future joint function.

Our goal is to avoid or at least slow down the progress of a degenerative disease. Challenges faced by modern diagnostics and therapy continuously and dynamically evolve. Therefore, we understand the constant need to verify our views regarding this subject and to discuss them with all specialists involved. During the Congress, the speakers will present modern and very often crucial views concerning the treatment of degenerative disease and injuries of the knee joint. Theoretical lectures will be verified on the spot in practical applications in the presence of the participants during the “live” surgery sessions.

Rehabilitation guarantees success of therapeutic procedures related to the knee joint and it can often effectively replace them. Nowadays, when the therapeutic process becomes more and more complicated, cooperation of a complete medical team – consisting of a surgeon, radiologist, nurse and physiotherapist – is indispensable. Without full understanding of every link in this chain, one cannot expect that the entire process of patient care will be successful. Therefore, we hope that all medical professionals who treat Patients with knee injuries will attend the Congress.

We look forward to a critical and open discussion.
See you at the Congress,
Konrad Słynarski Jacek Walawski
