Welcome Porto International Hip Meeting 2020



Dear friends

It is my honor and enormous privilege to welcome you to the city of Oporto for the 6th Porto International Hip Meeting.

This signature event, has brought together on the last edition more than 400 orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, nurses, residents and fellows - world leaders in our specialties of hip arthroscopy, open surgery, hip preservation, hip arthroplasties, hip trauma and rehabilitation. As a platform for international dialogue, the Porto International Hip Meeting also provides a unique opportunity for the exchange experiencies and knowledge with colleagues from around the world.

The Organizing Committee, Jorge Cruz de Melo, Fernando Leal, Paulo Rego and Pedro Dantas from Portugal and Manel Ribas and Ana Castel from Spain and Lafayette Lage from Brazil, are working diligently over the last edition to develop a challenging and engaging scientific programme reflecting the interests and desires of the delegates.

The programme emphasizes evidence-based medicine, new surgical techniques, and basic and advance science.

We are preparing a broad array of instructional courses (Hip Lab Practical Course), surgical demonstrations, Lives Surgeries, debates, lectures, expert panels, scientific paper presentations and electronic posters demonstrations focusing on the most current and controversial topics in hip preservation

This edition will be held at the Porto - Sheraton Congress Centre, one of the best congress center in Oporto which provides ideal facilities under one roof, enabling attendees to network and engage during sessions and more informally once the official programme has ended each day. The Porto-Sheraton Congress Centre is located close to the city centre with excellent access to and from any part of the city.

We look forward to meeting you in Oporto and to enjoy together this meeting.
