I think the 2016 ESSKA Congress was a superb mix of international collegiality, educational depth, and fun. As global meetings and multi-disciplinary representation increasingly become the norm for our specialty, this venue will serve as a wonderful model for ensuring the success of all such future events.
Professor Christopher W. DiGiovanni
From its very beginning, ESSKA has played a leading role in Sports Traumatology and Orthopaedics worldwide, publishing the very best scientific and surgical content available. In fact, the ESSKA congresses and the KSSTA are considered by most sports doctors to be the Sports Medicine Bible. For any patient to know his surgeon relies on ESSKA is to know that surgeon is well oriented in the developing breakthroughs of Sports Traumatology and Orthopaedics. I could not have developed research in the International Olympic Committee the way we have without the ESSKA background.
I’m Professor Lars Engebretsen. I’ve been involved in Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Sports Medicine since 1981, since 1984 in ESSKA, and published my first paper in 1985. Join us in Glasgow 2018 to have the same experience as I have had!

So many years ago ESKA started with one single S. It has grown since with another S which may stand for SUPERIOR, as I have experienced it. Indeed, as the world has changed, our orthopaedic community has definitely moved on and grown. Recalling the massive exchange of knowledge in Barcelona in 2016. But yet kept personal and professional contact at the individual level. Allowing for constructive and fruitful increase in information for the benefit of our patients. Both conservative and surgical approaches in the treatment of locomotor diseases and trauma have taken the stand in presentations and poster presentations. Grateful and proud to be part of this experience.
Professor Rene Verdonk
My compliments to the ESSKA organizing & scientific committees for their excellent 2016 congress in Barcelona, Spain. This congress truly reflected ESSKA’s state of the art scientific interest and dedication to optimal patient-care in sports medicine. The various scientific sessions, interactive debates and world-leading keynote speakers present a platform for all levels of professionals on a broad range of topics. The warm hospitality encouraged meeting new and old friends. I am looking forward to the ESSKA 2018 Congress in Glasgow, Scotland.
