Conference Convenors

Damian Griffin
Coventry & Warwickshire

Sports Hip 2016 will be an international conference for specialist hip surgeons and sports doctors to discuss the management of groin pain, hip injury, femoroacetabular impingement and early hip degeneration in the young, active patient.

Delegates will enjoy presentations of techniques and results, debate and informal discussion given by a wealth of distinguished speakers from the UK and abroad. Practical workshops will ensure that the science is balanced with tips and practical skills from some of the most innovative and experienced surgeons working in the speciality.

This exciting conference is organised every two years by Warwick Orthopaedics. Delegates can experience presentations, debate and informal discussion with a wealth of distinguished international speakers.

Sports Hip at the FA's Football Rehabilitation Centre

The venue for 2016 is likely to be St George’s Park, the prestigious new Football Association rehabilitation centre near Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire. This is both a fantastic site for a conference with residential facilities and it also provides great inspiration for excellence — in keeping with the conference theme of understanding injury mechanics, getting surgical management correct, and preventing reinjury through excellent rehabilitation.

Delegates can also choose to enjoy a conference dinner on the Monday evening where they will have a rare opportunity to network with other delegates and faculty in a relaxed setting.
