Our meetings are for everyone (regardless of age) needing help or with an interest in hip resurfacing or just wishing to meet and exchange experiences with others that already had a hip operation. To date more than 2600 Swedes have received a hip resurfacing prosthesis and our numbers are rising quickly.
The next 2021 meetings:
Our hope to organize a new meeting in Örebro one weekend in May or June 2021 was disturbed by the Corona situation. Time will tel if we succeed having a meeting this autumn but you can in any case show your interest. During our meeting weekends the participants are offered a free of charge consultation with one of the surgeons present but this needs to be booked with me in good time. You can contact me by e-mail if you would like to stay informed about the meetings or to book. Only meeting participants are offered time with a surgeon.
Please through e-mail and pay before the end of June using “Swish”, also indicate if you request a consultation with one of the surgeons.
Persons with a consultation need to send me their x-rays well in time though snailmail or else through an upload using WeTransfer and after having had contact with me first.
