The ORS International Section of Fracture Repair (ORS ISFR) along with our local hosts, look forward to hosting the Segmental Bone Defects Workshop in the beautiful city of Marseille, France.

The workshop will provide a unique opportunity for residents, orthopaedic surgeons, and researchers, including those from industry to network, collaborate, and learn about this important topic.  Faculty are recognized experts on segmental defect reconstructions and will present through practical cases and case discussions, current practices, and future directions for research.

We encourage everyone with an interest in the field of bone infection or acute defect reconstruction to join us in Marseille, June 23, 2017.
