COVID-19: The Orthopaedic Response. A Virtual Summit powered by UCSF DOCSF


COVID 19 has created massive disruption to the orthopaedic care model and rendered existing practice paradigms insufficient. We urgently need to understand the specific impact of COVID-19 on orthopaedic patients, share real-time learnings, and identify the technological superpowers at our digital fingertips. DOCSF is answering this challenge. The COVID-19 Orthopaedic Response Summit aims to spark the creativity and ingenuity of our community to redesign orthopaedic care in real time. The aim is to leverage technology to protect and empower our patients, our professionals, our health systems and our communities. 

Join us online Apr 2-3 for The COVID-19 Orthopaedic Response Summit which will be streamed live and include presentations from: Yan Wang MD (Beijing, China.
