Here we are with glimpses of another big event where “Lucknow Calls Osteocare” after attending the PKC – Pune knee course. So without further delay, let’s go ahead and find out how things went.
The Quick Insight of “Osteocare at IASCON”
The IASCON is a term used for the Indian Arthroscopy Society Conference – One of the largest medical conferences in the Country, organised by the Indian Arthroscopy Society.
During IASCON 2023 from September 1st to 3rd, Osteocare conducted a hands-on Workshop at Booth No. 20. It is a premier national meeting that continues to provide us with a unique opportunity to present live surgical sessions and a comprehensive range of products that are designed to simplify surgeons’ tasks and improve patient recovery.
1st September 2023: Discovered the Power of World’s First Hybrid Loop Button amp; Big Revelation
In Hall-A of IASCON | Knee, Day One began with the ACL/PCL session. We were pleased to have the first inaugural show (9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.), which gave attendees the chance to watch a live surgery of an ACL reconstruction with a hybrid loop button (OC EcoButton Flex). It was a unique opportunity for all attendees to witness a live surgery like never before.
The surgery was led by a well-known Surgeon in Ahmedabad – Dr. Prathmesh Jain, alongside moderators Dr. Kanchan Bhattacharya (Kolkata) and Dr. Nikhil Agarwal (Mumbai). We had the honour of discovering the power of the world’s first hybrid loop button – OC EcoButton Flex – during this live surgery. This revolutionary implant has the ability to lead, flip, and cinch with micro adjustability. In the field of arthroscopy, it is a game-changer. It was an empowering experience for our team to demonstrate groundbreaking surgical techniques, which left the audience stunned.
The same day, Osteocare booth no -20 was electrified with energy! With the launch of “ArthroKraft,” arthroscopic procedures have been redefined, making it smoother and more efficient. With the big revelation of cutting-edge arthroscopy equipment like the Arthroscopy Shaver System, LED Light Source, and Tourniquet System, we’re about to transform the arthroscopy landscape.
