Cancelled - 35th Annual Combined Orthopaedic Spring Symposium


Unfortunately, it has become impossible to hold the 35th Annual Combined Orthopaedic Spring Symposium due to public health guidance and institutional and state travel restrictions.  We want our meeting to be meaningful and successful for everyone - speakers, exhibitors and participants, and therefore, have decided to cancel the annual symposium on April 24 and 25, 2020.   We hope you will join us in 2021.

For those of you who have paid your exhibitor fees, please contact us directly to let us know how you would like to handle the fees paid.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Take care.
