Winglet TV event about athlete’s knee

Free live stream in German and English on November 15 starting at 19:00 CET

From Bauerfeind Life Magazin

When sports medicine rescues careers, it is usually the knee that is affected. To ensure a successful return to sports and return to competition, a network of experts is required. On November 15, 2023 from 19:00 to 20:45 CET, six physicians will share their expertise on athlete’s knee in a live stream on Winglet and, in a presenter-led chat, will discuss conservative and minimally invasive options when treating knee injuries in sports medicine. Bauerfeind will support this CME-certifiable event with the title The Athlete’s Knee. It will take place in German with simultaneous interpretation into English.

This event will be of interest to anyone treating patients who are physically active, and is aimed at

  • medical specialists from the fields of orthopedics, surgery, and sports medicine
  • specialists in physical and rehabilitative medicine
  • general practitioners and specialists in internal medicine (APIs) with an additional qualification in sports medicine

Interested parties can register free of charge on the Winglet platform if they are not already signed up and can also watch the event free of charge live via web streaming and later as a recording.

Martin Engelhardt (Osnabrück Hospital) and Prof. Dr. med.
