Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Croatian Orthopaedic Society and Croatian Forum on Orthopaedics and Traumatology are proud to announce the 4th edition of the “South-East European Forum on Orthopaedics and Traumatology (SEEFORT)”, to be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia in May 2023.

In line with the spirit of the successful first three editions, that were held in 2015, 2017 and 2019, this Forum’s goal is to present the latest scientific and clinical innovations in the field of orthopaedic surgery and traumatology. As a novelty we also propose hands-on-workshops and small interactive groups for clinicians, OR personnel, as well sessions dedicated to residents, nurses and physioherapists.

Once more, the Forum will be a multidisciplinary program of research and practice, giving the opportunity to interact and share clinical and research experiences with colleagues from the orthopaedic and musculoskeletal community. Prominent domestic and international speakers will provide comprehensive, up-to-date, research-based answers to the most frequent questions that arise in this rapidly evolving field of medicine.

On behalf of your Croatian hosts, we welcome you with the conviction that our Forum will prove to be the place to revive old and form new friendships, and with the hope that you will find it stimulating, informative and a pleasure.

South East European Forum on Orthopaedics and Traumatology Dubrovnik

The Forum will take place in the unique city of Dubrovnik that radiates with quiet elegance and sumptuous beauty. The residents call it the City. Others call it the pearl of the Adriatic, a paradise on Earth. Its beauty, harmony and importance for European culture, art and science are widely acclaimed and praised by poets. Historians regard Dubrovnik as a symbol of freedom, order and harmony between desires and possibilities. Diplomatic skills of its aristocratic governments have enabled this small naval trading republic to withstand pressures of much larger and more powerful forces and to protect its most valuable asset, the freedom, for centuries. With almost 1300 years of rich history, the City of Dubrovnik has proudly joined UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

The Forum venue is located between Dubrovnik Airport and city centre, Sheraton Dubrovnik in Mlini is the perfect oasis for meeting and discussing orthopaedic and trauma themes.
