Equilae’s scientific work continues to receive national and international recognition

This May in Santander, the 7th joint AEA-SEROD Conference was held, one of the most important events in the field of arthroscopy and knee surgery—on both a national and international scale.

Equilae saw its members actively participate in various roundtable discussions and training courses. They also presented several projects in different formats (oral presentations, posters and video stream), covering the entire surgical field of knee pathology.

Once again, our team has been honoured with several awards:

  • The prize for ‘The Best Oral Presentation on Arthroscopic Knee Pathology’: In-vivo analysis of controlling rotational instability via the modified Lemaire anterolateral tenodesis, performed in isolation, presented by Dr Simone Perelli.
  • The prize for ‘Best Video Stream of the Conference’: Biological patellofemoral prosthesis. Fresh osteochondral transplantation for the patellar and trochlear surfaces, presented by Dr Maximiliano Ibañez.

We also received new recognition during the 23rd International Conference for the Mexican Association of Articular and Arthroscopic Reconstructive Surgery (AMECRA). Here, the spotlight shone on Dr Christian Javier Sánchez Rábago, from Mexico’s Ángeles León hospital, who attended an on-site training course at Equilae between June and November of 2017. During his time on the team, he collaborated on the research project ‘Isolated, implant-free reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament with elastic femoral fixation in case of patellofemoral dislocation’, which was presented and awarded first place in the Podium category.

At Equilae, we believe that the exchange of knowledge and experience is one of the best ways to grow. This premise has always been the cornerstone of the fellowship program, and it has yielded results year in, year out.

The recognition and awards we have received fill Equilae with pride, demonstrating our ability to contribute towards the training of great professionals and to encourage a level of teamwork that transcends boundaries.
