It is relatively common to be associated with other sports injuries such as injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament or meniscus. According to the specialist, “Different techniques range from arthroscopic debridement, arthroscopy, and microfractures to superficial or deep abrasions. At this conference, I evaluated different surgical options from chondrocyte transplantation to retinal gels and collagen, presenting real interventions for these options and stating their advantages and disadvantages.” .
The main elements that were presented at this conference were: injury prevention in football, footballer’s knee, common postures in football, tendon injuries and medicine and sports disciplines applied to football. Each of the planned modules has different topics, which were taken up by the rest of the lecturers. For the specialist, “It is an honor to be invited by the Scientific Committee of the Conference, where world-renowned speakers in football medicine will participate.”
