This course is now full!

Welcome Message

It is our great pleasure to announce this educational event organised by SICOT. The theme is pelvic and acetabular injuries which are the most challenging topics in orthopaedic trauma.

The aim of the course is to provide an understanding to evaluation, emergency treatment, and treatment strategies of pelvic and acetabular injuries. Our target groups are general orthopaedic trauma surgeons and surgeons preparing for further specialisation in pelvic and acetabular surgery. After the course the participant should be able to perform independent decision-making and emergency treatment. The course can act as a solid basis for further studies and pelvic fellowships.

We have put together an exciting programme of lectures, interactive case discussions and also cadaveric dissections. We have also selected an excellent venue in Bangkok and participants will enjoy both the educational content and the Thai hospitality.
