Dear friend / colleague,

It is a great honour and privilege to invite you to Elbow Conclave 2019, a one-of-its-kind meet designed to help throw light on the most neglected joint in general orthopaedic practice. As a conclave of such magnitude taking place for the first time in India, it is bringing together some of the most distinguished minds from the orthopaedic fraternity in the UK and India under one roof.

They include the British Elbow and Shoulder Society (BESS) members led by its President, Mr. Peter Brownson, and our esteemed Shoulder and Elbow Society of India (SESI) members from across the country.

The agenda for this 2-day orthopaedic extravaganza includes invaluable discourses by the masters themselves, along with panel discussions, video presentations, live and re-live surgeries, a hands-on workshop and evidence based guidelines.

We sincerely hope Elbow Conclave 2019, with all its grandeur, turns out to be the most enlightening experience of your professional life.

We look forward to seeing you there.

With warm regards,
