  • Do’s and don’ts. An (evidence based) approach to….
  • Diagnosis of bone and joint infection / Surgical management of prosthetic joint infection / Wound closure
  • Something understood: Biofilm / Local antibiotics / Biomaterials and bugs
  • How I treat long bone infection
  • Rehabilitation – managing expectations
  • Engaging the research agenda
  • Trials and big data in bone and joint infection
  • Making the most of what we know: Why bother with a BIU? / How are we GIRFTING? / Update on diagnostic criteria and standards
  • New horizons : Bacterial metabolism and nanobubbles / Update on bacteriophages / Direct from tissue diagnostics


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’.
