THE Partial Knee Meeting


THE Partial Knee Meeting 


25 & 26 January 2024, Antwerp, Belgium


Join Us There

Dear colleagues, dear friends


It is with great pleasure that we announce the next edition of this innovative meeting formerly entitled “Small Implants”. For most of us “Small Implants” speaks for itself but let me extend on the topic.

THE Partial Knee meeting will, in a cycle of two years, happen in Europe and will discuss arthroplasty solutions that are not total joint replacements, but all other types of combinations of resurfacing solutions for knee osteoarthritis.

The utilization of unicompartmental replacements for medial and lateral femorotibial disease and patellofemoral replacements for patellofemoral osteoarthritis is increasing every day.

Patient satisfaction and functional results are proof of the necessity of this type of implants. However good indications and surgical technique determine the success for both patients and surgeons. Education and training can play an important role in this. Therefore we have selected the best surgeons from across the globe to come and share their experiences with us.

It is our great honor to organize the sixth edition of this fabulous meeting in Antwerp, Belgium. The previous edition was a huge success. We can only hope to do at least as well. The faculty we have already, now we only need you the audience, to make this a challenging and exciting meeting.

The program as you will see will be controversial with a lot of discussions challenging our faculty to share their experiences and results with us.

Attendance is limited to 200 surgeons, so please don’t wait until the last minute for your inscription.
