THE UK BIOLOGICAL
KNEE SOCIETY

Reconstruction and Regeneration, not Replacement

Thursday 30th &
Friday 31st January 2020

DOWNING COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE

Programme

The Biological Knee Society meeting 2020 will explore the options, rational and outcomes for repair and reconstruction techniques in the knee. The content will aim to stimulate scientifically based debate about the latest techniques and where they fit in with established interventions. The meeting remains focused on early interventions that may help to delay or avoid the need for knee replacement surgery in a growing population of younger patients with knee pathology.
