The Oxford Challenging Hip Meeting

Wednesday 20th November 2013 - This event has now passed

The Oxford Hotel (formerly Barcelo Oxford Hotel), Oxford, UK


Welcome to the Oxford Challenging Hip Meeting. Following the success of the 2012 Southampton meeting, we are pleased to announce the Oxford Challenging Hip 2013. This is an exceptional opportunity to be able to see and discuss a variety of difficult cases and scenarios that are faced by both the primary and revision hip surgeon. Our expert faculty will give their own thoughts as to how they will deal with each scenario.


In the afternoon we will look at the complex revision scenario and there will be a strong focus throughout the day on relevant case discussion and debate.


The day has an expert faculty and we are hoping for interaction from delegates throughout the day.


The late afternoon session will focus on Outcomes in Hip Arthroplasty and some of the challenges that the current system creates.


We will be applying for CPD accreditation with the BOA for the Oxford Challenging Hip Meeting 2013.


Book now to secure your place.
