Dear Colleagues,

In the context of COVID-19 and recent developments, the European Knee Society, the International Congress for Joint Reconstruction and the European Hip Society decided to modify the format of the 3rd World Arthroplasty Congress which was scheduled from 13 to 15 May, 2021 in Munich, Germany.

For weeks, we have closely monitored updates from the German government.

As our number one concern is the health and safety of delegates, speakers, exhibitors and staff, the current situation unfortunately does not allow us to go ahead with the live Congress in May.

However, on 22-24 April, 2021 a Virtual WAC will be organized with involvement of our world experts in the field of TKA/THA. During this 3-day webinar we will focus on lectures, surgical techniques/videos and case discussions. Also a large number of best rated abstracts on research in field of TKA/THA are presented and discussed.

We hope to virtually see you in April 2021!

Yours sincerely,

The EKS, ICJR and EHS Board Members

Aftermovie WAC 2018
