- ABOUT US
Chairman: Ronald van Heerwaarden (The Netherlands)
The ESSKA Osteotomy Committee was instituted in May 2016 at the Barcelona Congress. With help from the ESSKA Board, 14 experts in osteotomy and joint-preservation surgery from various European countries were invited to join the committee. The first meeting was held on 5 May, and future goals were confirmed.
In the next two years, the members will plan ESSKA approved courses on osteotomy and joint-preservationin Europe. Also, the members will compare osteotomy to other joint-preserving treatments and jointreplacements, as an economic (inexpensive) healthcare intervention. After national evaluations, we can hope for a European consensus.
The committee will also work on establishing a European registry of osteotomies around the knee.
