Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Symposium

About Event
Cancellation Notice

Baptist Health South Florida, along with our symposium directors, has decided to cancel the Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Symposium due to the health and safety concerns related to COVID-19. Our top priority is the health and safety of the medical professionals, faculty, staff, and community who attend our symposiums.

We hope that you will join us in 2022 at the Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove!


This symposium will provide a comprehensive update on the latest developments in the fast-growing field of orthopedic sports medicine. This educational activity will focus on improving athletic performance, along with recovery and prevention of future injuries. Clinical conditions and injuries of the shoulder, elbow, hand, knee, and foot and ankle will be presented. In addition, a hands-on workshop has been designed to provide orthopedic surgeons, fellows and residents the opportunity to enhance their own skills in arthroscopy and open surgery.​
