For the third time, an international symposium on arthrogryposis is being held. The first took place in Birmingham (England) in 2007, and the second in Sankt Petersburg (Russia) in 2014. The aim of the conference is to bring together representatives of the global medical community involved in the treatment of arthrogryposis to exchange experiences. In the words of the organisers, the treatment and also possibilities for normal functioning of sufferers of arthrogryposis have changed over the years. In spite of this, there is still too little research, and too few support groups and associations dealing with this issue. Conferences such as this one aim to build a group of people interested in treatment of this condition so that they can share their own experiences, develop guidelines and recommendations, and create a group of mutual contacts to benefit from these shared experiences. Dr Bartłomiej Kowalczyk, MD, the director of the Arthrogryposis Treatment Centre at the Prokocim Kraków Hospital, is a member of the organising committee. More information on the conference available on the official website.
