Dr. Della Valle

Dr. Craig Della Valle gave the Presidential Guest Lecture in London at the 2017 BHS Annual Meeting.

The following report was submitted by Stefano A. Bini, MD: The British Hip Society’s (BHS) 450 Delegates welcomed a delegation from AAHKS to London this week as their first Guest Society. Several AAHKS members joined the official delegation of Mark I. Froimson, MD, First Vice President, Craig J. Della Valle, MD, Second vice President and Stefano A. Bini, MD, Chair of the International Committee.

The AAHKS delegation presented several scientific papers as well as a Symposium discussing same-day surgery, bundled payments and digital health topics. Exposure to our British colleagues’ perspectives on shared problems was eye opening, and the quality of the research excellent.

The BHS delegates who presented at the AAHKS 2016 Annual Meeting were very complimentary of the experience. We will welcome the BHS to Dallas as one of our 2018 Guest Societies and look forward to our continued relationship in future years. We are grateful to Fares Haddad, President of BHS and member of the AAHKS International Committee for promoting and facilitating the event.
