Welcome to ArthroLondon, the 4th International Symposium on Operative and Biologic Treatments in Sports Medicine.
It is a great honour and pleasure for me to be the Scientific Chairman of an international sports medicine congress of this size, in this exciting Olympic year. It is also a challenge to match the high standards set by the prior ArthroEvents (Cologne and Munich) with regard to the quality, practicality and cutting edge nature of the information presented. This symposium will provide a unique opportunity for the exchange of knowledge and dissemination of research findings throughout the international community.
The role and importance of sports medicine and minimally-invasive orthopaedics has changed as the aging population increasingly engages in sporting activities which demand high levels of function even after injury. People want to return to an active post-injury sporting lifestyle irrespective of age. Additionally, minimally-invasive surgical techniques have the potential to accelerate vocational re-integration after surgery, which can have a huge economic impact.
The main goals of this congress include an update on the latest surgical techniques and report of the latest advances in biologic healing enhancement, whilst maintaining the pioneering scientific spirit and patient focus of prior ArthroEvents.
The meeting will include live surgical demonstrations, short paper presentations, debates and panel discussions.
We are fortunate to have a distinguished faculty representing the international leaders in arthroscopy, knee, shoulder and hip surgery, sports medicine, distal extremities and biologic treatment.
I look forward to the stimulating and progressive programme that will be ArthroLondon 2012.
We hope the schedule will also allow friendships to form, and ideas to spread during the scientific and social programmes here in London.

On behalf of London, I am delighted that the ArthroLondon 2012 congress for sports medicine will be coming to the UK's capital.
2012 is going to be a huge milestone year for London, and the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games represent a fantastic opportunity to showcase both the city’s love of sport and enhance its reputation among the businesses and specialists working within the sports industry.
London is rich in sporting heritage with some of the world’s most iconic sporting arenas – Lord’s Cricket Ground, Twickenham, Wembley and Wimbledon to name a few – which continue to draw global audiences. The completion of our spectacular Olympic venues will increase these opportunities, bringing several exciting sports to London for the first time. This passion for sport will continue well beyond 2012, as we seek to combine elite performance sport with boosting participation and encouraging new generations to get active. Sports medicine is at the very heart of ensuring that future athletes and generations are fit and healthy.
With more than 1,000 unique events venues and a culture rich in diversity, heritage and culinary delights, London offers an once-in-a-lifetime experience that can’t be found anywhere else. More than 50 major international communities have made the UK capital their home; you can hear more than 300 different languages spoken in the city. London constantly reinvents itself as the stylish capital of art, culture, music, architecture, dining and fashion. There is always something exciting to captivate visitors - from world-class sightseeing, theatres and shopping, to museums, historic palaces and nightlife.
This remarkable diversity makes London an ideal destination for every business, every event and every delegate, and is just one reason the capital consistently ranks among the top 10 destinations in the world for international conferences.
It is a great honour for the city to host ArthroLondon 2012 and a warm welcome will be extended to all visitors throughout this prestigious event. I have no doubt that you will have a most enjoyable Congress and I am delighted you are coming to London during one of the most exciting years in the capital\'s history. I wish you every success in advance with the event and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon!
Mayor of London, Boris Johnson
