President’s Update – September 2023

Summer’s end marks the approaching BOA conference, and we’re excited to invite you to our BHS sessions on September 20th. We have a dynamic lineup, covering crucial topics like the management of metastatic hip disease and trauma. These sessions are curated by experts and include the President of the Australian Orthopaedic Association, Chris Morrey.

In addition, we’ll announce the ORUK MSK grand challenge award, focused on innovative clinical strategies and health economic analyses to enhance hip patient care. This initiative aims to reduce waiting lists and aid patients’ return to work. Don’t miss this opportunity!
