The HSS Stavros Niarchos Foundation Orthopaedic Seminar Program was developed to teach Greek orthopaedic surgeons the latest techniques and innovations in orthopaedic surgery.

Seminars include two days at HSS, where a group of 16 surgeons will participate in a combination of didactic sessions, case presentations, and hands-on cadaver training workshops led by HSS Faculty.

During the last three days of the course, participants attend the HSS Annual Knee & Hip Course, a CME-accredited professional education program that provides the opportunity to learn from over 25 HSS faculty and guest educators.
