Rapid Recovery Symposium 2011

Why is your patient in hospital today?


3-4 November, Hilton Hotel, Berlin, Germany


The symposium and the Rapid Recovery programmes are meant to find answers to
this simple question. 


Over 150 delegates attended the annual symposium, held on November 3-4 in Berlin, Germany. The event provided a range of
health care professionals with a unique
insight into all aspects of recovery after
total hip and knee replacement surgery,
and highlighted how optimising the entire
process of orthopaedic patient care allows
patients to leave hospital safer and sooner.           

                                                                            Professor Henrik Kehlet


Chaired by a pioneer of ‘fast-track’ surgery, Professor Henrik Kehlet, delegates attended a number of presentations about the latest developments in this field over the two-day symposium.                             


The evidence base for a rapid recovery approach to surgery, and the experience of setting up and running Rapid Recovery programmes in a number of centres were described and discussed by a faculty of speakers.


Overall the symposium was as a great success and the feedback was extremely positive. Next year's date and location will be announced on this website soon!


If you are interested in attending the symposium in 2012,
