It is our honor to invite you to participate in the 4th Course in knee and ankle arthroscopy organized by the Association for Arthroscopic Surgery and Sports Traumatology Serbia (ASTAS).

The course will be held in Novi Sad 29.-30.05.2015. in Hotel Prezident and Clinical Center.

The topic has been in focus for more than a decade – the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee. Despite great progress in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of these specific violations, there is still a lot of controversy. The course participants will attempt to summarize the current knowledge of anatomy, physiology, treatment and rehabilitation following surgery.

Live operations of anterior cruciate ligament with different Grafons will be organized, and this will also include interactive participation of students and surgeons.

A mini course in arthroscopic surgery of the ankle is going to be held for the first time. (live operations)
