Dear VOS Membership,
The VOS/2018 WVOC Committee is excited to let you know that the finishing touches are being made by the ESVOT for the 5th World Veterinary Orthopaedic Congress to be held in Barcelona, Spain, September 12-15, 2018. Presentation topics will include Feline Joint Disease, Canine Shoulder and Elbow Diseases, Fracture Management, Equine Orthopedics, Lumbo-Sacral Disease, Onco Surgery of the Musculoskeletal System, Regenerative Medicine, Ligament and Tendon Surgery, Musculoskeletal Research Advancements; to name just a few! Please go to http://www.wvoc2018.eu/ for updates on the final program, information on registration, lodging and travel.
For those members who are scheduled to present at various veterinary meetings between now and the 2018 WVOC, please include this slide at the end of your talks to advertise for the upcoming WVOC. This practice has helped us to achieve maximum exposure for the Congress in the past! Please be sure to use the revised slide below with the correct website address.
We will keep you posted with any other developments or pertinent information regarding the 5th WVOC. We hope you will consider attending what is expected to be a fantastic meeting, in a beautiful city and country, and at a most excellent time of the year! We also hope that we will have very good VOS membership representation at the Congress next year as well. Thank you all and please contact the VOS office at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Your VOS/WVOC Planning Committee

Meet the 2018 Jacques Jenny Lecturer
Dr. Scott Banks is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Florida. Although you may not initially make the leap to veterinary orthopedics based on his department, he has been active in veterinary and human orthopedic research his entire career. Scott's research interests include joint biomechanics in animals and people in the healthy, diseased, and replaced states. His lectures in 2018 will likely include topics including radiographic measurement of dynamic skeletal motion, robotics in the operating room, and comparing human and dog knees. Scott has attended the VOS meeting in years past so he is familiar with the format and comradery of our scientific sessions.
