Date:4/13/2017

The Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) will host the 2017 World Congress on Osteoarthritis, April 27 – 30 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The annual OARSI Congress is a global forum for those involved in OA research and treatment from academia and industry. The meeting features international speakers presenting the latest information on a wide range of topics related to joint damage and OA.

More than 1,100 of the world's leading scientists, clinicians, clinical investigators, rheumatologists, orthopedists, radiologists and others interested in osteoarthritis research are expected to attend this broad-based global forum presented annually by OARSI.

“The World Congress brings together professionals across all disciplines to learn about new technologies and research in the OA field,” said Dr. Tonia Vincent, Congress Program Chair and OARSI Board Member. “The program committee has worked tirelessly to develop a program that will allow attendees the opportunity to learn and network with some of the best and most informed professionals in the industry.”

This 2017 World Congress program features plenary sessions, concurrent sessions, breakfast workshops and more oral presentations of abstracts than any Congress before it. Attendees may receive Continuing Medical Education credits by registering and attending sessions. Back by popular demand, there will be a debate held on Saturday, April 29 titled, Is Exercise Good or Bad for OA?! Dr. Stephen Messier is well-known for his work on the effects of exercise and weight loss on gait, strength, function, and pain in knee OA and will highlight the benefits of exercise in patients with OA. Dr. Nigel Arden, MBBS, FRCP, MSc, is an International Leader in epidemiology, predictive modelling and trial design and will focus on the negative effects of exercise for those with OA.
