“Motion is Life” is the motto of the DKOU 2017 (German Congress of Orthopedic and Trauma Surgery). Motion is a fundamental condition for our health – beginning with the various processes occurring every second in our body and finally resulting in the movement of our extremities. The loss of motion leads to functional deficits, to the loss of mobility and to a serious restriction of the quality of life. Keeping our motion and regaining lost motion is therefore one of the key goals of orthopedic and trauma surgery.

Congress presidents are Prof. Dr. Andrea Meurer, Prof. Dr. Ingo Marzi und Prof. Dr. Alexander Beck.

The USA is the guest nation of the DKOU 2017.

Abstracts can be submitted until 15 January 2017.
