Gdansk, 2021/2022

Dear Colleagues

Dear Friends

The Congress of the Polish Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology is the holiday of Polish Orthopedics, it is the most important orthopedic event in our country. It combines learning with practical knowledge, experience and at the same time enables direct contact between us.

Leading themes are spinal deformities, upper limb injuries and bone tumors. Of course, regardless of the main topics, we anticipate free topics and training lectures. Scientific sessions, discussion panels, poster sessions and courses will allow to broaden the knowledge and practical skills which directly translates into the treatment of our patients. It is mainly for them that we do it because our goal is to improve the quality of their lives.

We pay special attention to training. Instructional lectures will be addressed to residents in order to support them in acquiring knowledge and failure-free passing the specialization exam. A similar role will be played by sessions organized by the sections of the Society and independent Societies derived from orthopedics. The National Consultant prof. Jaroslaw Czubak will support our congress.

I invite all the members of the Society to the General Assembly at which we will present our activities and set our plans for the future. We are very much waiting for your votes in the discussion to get to know your expectations, comments and suggestions. It is important that, despite the development of the Internet, social media, remember that we need to talk to each other, get to know each other, discuss, and be together not only in the meeting room but also in social gatherings. It connects us but also translates into more efficient treatment of our patients.

The congress takes place in Gdańsk, a charming and hospitable city with great traditions. When using this please do not forget about the basic goal of Orthopaedics and traumatology. However, I am convinced that we will find time to discover the atmosphere of this beautiful city. Gdańsk is a well-deserved, leading orthopedic center. Organizer of many conventions, symposia and courses. I am convinced that thanks to the actions of experienced and efficient organizers listed in the Organizing Committee under the leadership of prof. Tomasz Mazurek and with the support of our Society, the Congress will prove to be success.

See you in Gdańsk at the Congress of the Polish Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology.


professor Leszek Romanowski

President of the Polish Orthopaedic and Traumatological Society

Ladies and gentlemen,

The Department of Orthopaedics and Kinetic Organ Traumatology of the Medical University of Gdańsk and the Pomeranian Division of the Polish Orthopaedic Society will host a meeting of our association in 2020/2021. It will be the fourth meeting of its kind in Pomerania. The first one was organised by Henryk Cetkowski – the creator of Polish Orthopaedics in our region and took place in Gdynia in 1946. The subject of the 7th edition of the Congress concerned the matters most actual at the time – the treatment of hip tuberculosis and treatment of wartime wounds.

The founding of the Department of Orthopaedics Medical University of Gdańsk in 1953 influenced the development of orthopaedics in Pomerania and the organisation of the 12th edition of the Congress organized by Alfons Senger in 1959. This time the main subject concerned the arthrosis of the hip and the treatment of bone and joint tuberculosis. Then, in 1976 professor Antoni Hlavaty hosted the 21st Congress of our Society which was dedicated to the treatment of the congenital clubfoot and the application of stable osteosynthesis. In 1992 Professor Józef Szczekot organised the memorable 29th meeting of the Polish Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, the subject of which was the surgical treatment of scoliosis and trauma of the knee joint. This edition is remembered positively not only as a scientific event but also for outstanding organisation.

Since then a lot of time has passed by and the dynamic development of the Department of Orthopaedics and Kinetic Organ Traumatology of the Medical University of Gdańsk and orthopaedics in the Pomerania region encouraged us to host another congress of our association. Traditionally the subject of the meeting relates to the fields of orthopaedics at which our Department excels: deformities of the spine, trauma of the upper limb and treatment of benign tumours of the bone. There will surely be a lot to discuss – thanks to the application of modern techniques like preoperative computer tomography, navigation, thermo-ablation and surgical microscope we are able to help our patients efficiently and safely, at the same time overcoming obstacles and limitations.

Our purpose during this, 43rd edition of the Congress is to come up with guidelines concerning the traumatology of the musculoskeletal system which would help young doctors not only from the field of orthopaedics but paediatric surgery, surgery, neurosurgery and emergency medicine as well. This knowledge is also directed towards radiologists and physiotherapists. We hope that this kind of formula will not only help in the practical study of traumatology but also in the passing of the specialisation test.

We undertake this difficult task but we also believe we can achieve our goals in cooperation with other centres in Pomerania and throughout Poland. We hope it will be easier in the magical city of Gdańsk with its wonderful architecture, landmarks and the Baltic Sea which will without doubt make an unforgettable impression on the participants.

I cordially invite you to Gdańsk!
