We bring together orthopaedic surgeons, clinicians and scientists in Europe, along with their various societies.
In all this, ESSKA’s aim is to improve our patients’ quality-of-life, by improving the quality of their treatment.
The ESSKA Congress is held every two years.
ESSKA fellowship programmes are a valuable tool. They select promising surgeons — our hopes for the future — and expose them to the current "stars" and to their facilities. The range of fellowships is extensive: 13 separate programmes, with more than 80 positions, ranging from one week to a month, and several of them truly international. They are eagerly contested.
ESSKA accredits teaching centres across Europe ensuring the highest of standards. Only accredited centres are allowed to take part in ESSKA’s fellowship programmes.
ESSKA has four specialised sections — AFAS, EKA, ESA and ESMA — as well as 10 committees.
ESSKA publishes the research of its members through its monthly journal KSSTA, which has an Impact Factor of 3.210. This is a prestigious forum for scientific contribution and attracts an ever-increasing number of submissions.
ESSKA also successfully launched the Journal of Experimental Orthopaedics (JEO), an international journal focusing on orthopaedic basic science. JEO is already indexed in both PubMed and MEDLINE.
ESSKA also publishes books, which are renowned for their academic excellence.
ESSKA works closely with affiliated societies, offering them a larger arena than their national confines. We provide expertise and organisation and a bigger forum for their members. Our sister societies overseas are AOSSM, APKASS and SLARD.
ESSKA Membership offers many benefits, apart from the comradeship of your peers.
