In barely more than a decade the International Repair Society has become an influential and unique organization in the worldwide orthopedic community. Members are international leading clinicians, scientists and industry partners who have a common goal of advancing cartilage science towards more effective clinical treatment of joint injury and degeneration.

This World Congress will present major advances in treating cartilage injuries and provide future direction for scientific and clinical research in joint diseases. More than 1,000 physicians and scientists will be attending from 70 countries. More than 30 companies will also be exhibiting and showing that the cartilage repair market is taking center stage for good reason.

Why cartilage repair:

Technologies that repair, regenerate or protect the cartilaginous surface of joints and stave off the degenerative process may offer patients with pain and impaired mobility due to osteoarthritis, an earlier and less invasive treatment option. This would be a much needed alternative to ablative procedures, such as joint replacement.

Scientific program:

The scientific program features 200 leading speakers from all over the world, honorary lectures as well as special sessions and workshops on critical topics.

These include new, cutting edge studies, platelet rich plasma and joint tissue healing, cell free approaches for cartilage repair, influence of subchondral bone on cartilage repair, one-stage procedures for cartilage repair, joint lubrication and rehabilitation techniques.

Benefit from reduced fees until April 20 at noon CET. After this date, increased onsite fees will apply.

CME credits:

This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and approved by the Canadian Orthopaedic Association.

Live educational activities, occurring in Canada, recognized by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada as Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) are deemed by the European Union of Medical Specialists (EUMS) eligible for ECMEC credits.

Cartilage Executive Office GmbH

The ICRS is the main forum for international collaboration in cartilaginous tissue research by bringing together basic scientists and clinical researchers, engaged or interested in the field of cartilage biology and cartilaginous tissue engineering. Globalization and strengthened partnership with many other societies is important to reach these objectives. Stability, independency, a high level of professionalism, innovation and creativity on a strategic level will therefore be critical issues.
