ESSKA Congress
Share |

The ESSKA Congress is held every two years and is the major event in the pan-European calendar.
It brings together the leading players so they can share the latest techniques and research.
ESSKA congresses are famous for their vibrancy.

There are scientific papers, demonstrations of surgical techniques, discussions and debates and workshops,
and of course the social gatherings...
The last Congress was in Barcelona and attracted over 4,000 professionals.

The 18th ESSKA Congress was held on 9-12 May 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland, UK.
