We would like to invite you to the 4th “Reconstructive pelvic surgery: a cadaver course” from 15-16 June 2020. The meeting will be hosted in Leiden, the Netherlands. It is organised by the Department of Orthopaedics of the Leiden University Medical Centre in close cooperation with other Universities of the International Faculty. The academic programme promises to include a review and update of orthopaedics in pelvic surgery including lecture presentations, virtual reality imaging, workshops and a hands-on cadaver course. Internationally acclaimed invited speakers will ensure that trainees and experts will be up to date with the latest modern orthopaedic technology and evidence-based medicine. The programme will focus on accurate resection and reconstruction performing computer assisted surgery. It is an interactive and comprehensive course, addressed to orthopaedic surgeons who wish to become an expert in reconstructive pelvic surgery or involved orthopaedic surgeons who want to train to refresh or widen their knowledge and experience.

Situated at what has traditionally been an important junction where waterways and roads cross stands a city that will enchant you: Leiden. The city is famous for its almshouses, university, museums and glorious history. The spirit of the Golden Age lives on here, a place where Rembrandt was born and inspired so many other influential painters.The canals, the historical buildings, the alleyways, the treasuries of knowledge, culture and science: Leiden is definitely worth seeing.
