Welcome Address

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 4th World Arthroplasty Congress, to be held in Madrid, Spain on 18 and 19 of April 2024.

Building upon the success of the previous editions of the WAC, The European Knee Society in collaboration with the European Hip Society, The Hip Society and The Knee Society, as well as the International Orthopaedic Education Network have been working together to create a high-level scientific program about Hip and Knee arthroplasty. This a unique and original collaboration. Of course, top speakers from Asia-Pacific will also be part of the program.

Sixty top faculty from across the world will lead sessions on the hottest topics in hip and knee arthroplasty. WAC stands for World Arthroplasty Congress and therefore speakers from Asia-Pacific will join there colleagues from Europe and the US.

With today’s surgical environment being impacted by societal, political and economic constraints, this congress brings together leading experts to focus on the common goal of advancing the field of hip and knee arthroplasty and to improve patient care. It will also be a unique opportunity to interact, discuss and share thoughts about our common passion: hip and knee arthroplasty. General and deep-dive sessions will create this unique opportunity for delegates, faculty, and companies to interact at a global level.

Health care professionals can participate as delegates but can also submit their own unique research papers. Following a blinded double review by the world-leading expert in the field, your work can be selected for a podium presentation or as an e-poster, displayed during both days of the meeting. This 4th World Arthroplasty Congress will be an excellent opportunity to communicate your message to an eager and engaged audience.

We can’t wait to welcome you in Madrid and see you there to participate in making WAC history!
