I warmly welcome you to the MAST 4 Conference here in Thessaloniki, once again at the stunning Concert Hall, “Megaron Mousikis”. This year, our special focus is MIS Arthroplasty and related techniques and technologies. The programme also includes presentations regarding the full spectrum of current hip and knee arthroplasty and revision concepts by renowned national and international faculty.
As from this year, the MAST conference has achieved International status and is co-organised by EHS (The European Hip Society), as well as being honoured again by the auspices of EFORT (The European Federation of National Associations or Orthopaedics and Traumatology).
The MAST conference runs simultaneously this year with the first international virtual reality training course, “VITRO 1” (VIrtual TRaining Orthopaedics 1), where we are offering our participants the unique opportunity to train in four different hip arthroplasty approaches, namely direct anterior, antero-lateral, direct superior and Super Path.
The MAST 4 conference is a fantastic opportunity for you to exchange views on serious medical and surgical arthroplasty concepts, under the light of the latest research. The beautiful city of Thessaloniki is the Byzantine jewel of Greece and will capture your imagination with its lively atmosphere and numerous historical sites. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you.
