The #ESSM2022 is part of the historical moment we are all facing due to the pandemic: we are forced to meet online. However, let us foster the opportunities a virtual platform is offering us! Let us edit the history – make one of our own! ESSM President Carlo Bettocchi and the ESSM committee are looking forward to welcome you to the 23rd ESSM Virtual Congress 2022! Three awesome days of sharing, exploring, discussing, exchanging and talking about the latest advances, surgical techniques and research perspectives lay ahead of us!
