European Symposium on Biomaterials
in Orthopedics and Spine

We are fortunate to live in the golden era of technology development that redefines every aspect of our lives, with medicine being no exception.

On behalf of the Organisational Committee we have the upmost pleasure to cordially invite you to attend the 2nd European Symposium on Biomaterials in Orthopaedics and Spine (ESBOS), which will be held on the 12th-13th of April 2018 in Poznan, Poland.

The First ESBOS from 2015 attracted a great deal of international attention and was announced as a great accomplishment. To further build on this success, we are aiming to again bring together Polish, European and International specialists so to share and disseminate the state-of-the-art technological solutions in orthopaedics. The Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology of Poznan University of Medical Sciences organizes the symposium jointly with the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute from Bologna and with the Neo Medica clinics of Poznan.

The meeting promises to be a highlight for the international specialists that form the heart and soul of orthopaedics. This time we aim to focus on 3D technologies that seem to be increasingly more popular in orthopaedics and spine surgery for its reconstructive potential through 3D printing.

The advancements in biotechnology are so multidirectional that we recognize the need to review the latest technological advances in orthopaedics in order to redefine where we stand. We are looking forward to making this a learning opportunity by creating a platform for sharing of experience, ideas, skills and knowledge concerning new methods of reconstructive surgery, tissue regeneration technologies, novel biomaterials used in reconstruction of joint structures and related orthopaedic surgery techniques.

Having received confirmation of attendance from multiple national and international specialists already, we hope that this undertaking will again prove successful, giving our guests a unique opportunity to learn from one another, make friends and enjoy everything the City of Poznan has to offer.

We sincerely hope you consider our request and we look forward to seeing you in Poznań.

Poznań is among the oldest cities in Poland
and was one of the most important centers in the early Polish state in the tenth and eleventh centuries.

The first center city was Ostrów Tumski, the natural island on the Warta river-very similar to the Île de la Cité in Paris. The first rulers were buried in Poznań’s cathedral on the island. It also served as the capital for a short time in the 13th century, hence the official name: The capital city of Poznan. Poznań is one of the biggest cities in Poland. It is the historical capital of the Wielkopolska (Greater Poland) region and is currently the administrative capital of the province called Greater Poland Voivodeship.
Poznań is today one of the largest Polish centers of trade, industry, sports, education, technology, tourism and culture. It is particularly important academic center, with about 130,000 students and the third biggest Polish university – Adam Mickiewicz University. It is also the residence of the oldest Polish diocese, now being one of the most populous archdioceses in the country.
