Welcome note

Dear colleagues,

It is our great privilege to invite you to the 2024 European Pelvic Course and Workshop in Amsterdam.  

The course follows the same tradition and principles since its inception in 2012. It will cover pelvic and acetabular fracture surgery based on the strong foundations and concepts developed by Emile Letournel. However, more modern adaptations and current concepts will also be discussed. The faculty consists of internationally renowned experts in the field of pelvic and acetabular surgery. The course will be dedicated to the in-depth learning of how to manage pelvic fractures and how to diagnose, classify and treat the different types of acetabular fractures.  

As per the tradition of this course, there will be ample time for practical exercises on cadaveric specimens (2 half days) as well as case discussions. During the cadaveric dissections and practical sessions, the main focus will be to cover the common approaches used for pelvic and acetabular fracture surgery and to learn tips/ tricks and technical details from the experts. We appreciate that pelvic and acetabular fracture surgery is complex surgery and hence to maximise exposure in the cadaveric labs and during the case discussions we have limited the number of delegates to 72.  

You will therefore be able to work closely with the experts, ask questions and have the opportunity to really get to know the faculty over the 3 days.  

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the European Pelvic Course in Amsterdam.  

Best regards  

Wolfgang Lehmann and Mez Acharya
