Under the patronage of the European Society of Tissue Regeneration in Orthopaedics and Traumatology (ESTROT), the UKE and the Institute for Osteology and Biomechanics (IOBM) 15 top-notch, international speakers from research, science and practice gave lectures during the CME accredited symposium. The presentations were about the latest findings in bone regeneration with a key focus on orthopedics, traumatology and spine surgery.
