7-8 December
9th Annual Oxford Bone Infection Conference

Examination Schools, High Street, Oxford

The underlying principle of OBIC is multi-disciplinary working. We invite all grades of orthopaedic and trauma surgeons, plastic surgeons, infection specialists, nursing and therapy staff and researchers to attend.

Internationally renowned speakers will deliver state-of-the-art talks, including the prestigious Cierny-Mader lecture which is invited each year to honour ‘excellence and innovation in the multidisciplinary management of bone and joint infection’.

The programme will include lectures, workshops and interactive sessions including:

Do’s and don’ts.  An (evidence based) approach to….

Something understood: Biofilm / Local antibiotics / Biomaterials and bugs
