Celebrating 10 years of Osseointegration in Chile . Pioneering Osseointegration in Latin America.
We are glad to celebrate 10 years of experience in osseointegration with our collaboration team in Chile during the Congress of Osseointegration in Hospital del Trabajador- Chile, which will be held on August 20, 2019.
The convention will provide healthcare providers, patients and the community with information on osseointegration with the OPRA Implant System, its benefits and share the experience accumulated over the 10 years. Information regarding exciting technologies to further support amputees such as Neuromotus, a novel treatment for Phantom Limb Pain, which was introduced this year.
“The Osseointegration Congress for amputee patients is framed within the 10 years of the use of this technique in the Hospital del Trabajador (Chile) and Latin America. Hospital del Trabajador has been a pioneer and so far, the only center in South America with an osseointegration program. During this period more than 40 patients have entered the program and we are excited to share this journey.’’, says Dr. Juan Carlos Velez, Head of the Department of Rehabilitation at the Hospital del Trabajador de Santiago
Dr. Rickard Brånemark is the key-note speaker for the event and will address ‘The Future of Osseointegration’.
