The first conference was hosted in 2019 and the second in 2022 which covered the treatment of Paediatric and Adolescent soft tissue knee injuries and disorders. Some of the most experienced surgeons from around the world were brought together to discuss and debate controversies and treatment options in a comprehensive programme.
