The field of hip is huge. From pediatric orthopaedics, ultrasound and children, to orthogeriatrics work with all the problems around the hip… This is a beautiful field for young researchers and young residents wanting to specialize in the hip, and the best way to do this is to join our society. Our mission is to develop our society – not only with the ExCom members in our various committees, but also with each and every member – to become one of the most outstanding specialty societies in Europe.
