Welcome Letter

    Dear friends,
        On behalf of the Greek Paediatric Orthopaedics Section of the Hellenic Association of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology, the Sheffield Children’s Hospital’s Sharrard Society and the Local Organising Committee we are honoured to welcome you to the 1st Hip Preservation Symposium, an international meeting which will be held in Chania, Crete, Greece.


        The Chania and the historical Center of Mediterranean Architecture is the same venue used for the very successful international meeting held by Sharrard Society of Sheffield Children’s Hospital in October 2015.


        The goal of the meeting is to take us a step further by combining the expertise of Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeons and Adult Orthopaedic Surgeons.

        It is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences regarding the treatment of the hip joint pathologies, from birth to mid adulthood. Thus we can follow the path of the problem from the beginning to the end. It is a perfect chance to listen, discuss and interact with world reknown experts on this field both from Greece and rest of Europe.


        So we await you in Chania, a city of stunning beauty and especially in the heart of the old Venetian harbour, a true gem of architecture. A very special region of the world, with a unique mixture of ancient and modern history.


        Join us in Chania in October 2018 !


          Dr Babis Konstantoulakis MD, Local Host,
              Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Chania General Hospital, GR
              Vice President of the Paediatric Orthopaedics Section
              of the Hellenic Association of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology.
