About these proceedings


Dear Colleague and Participant in Bioceramics and Alternative Bearings in Joint th ® Arthroplasty: 11 International BIOLOX Symposium We are once again very proud of the fact that we have been able to provide you with the proceedings of this Symposium as a part of your registration materials. This is a mayor achievement that could only be made possible by the excellent cooperation of all of the speakers, the publishing house and their staff and the Symposium Administrator and her support staff. Our special thanks to all of them for their hard work and dedication to meet the difficult deadlines required to make this a reality. The proceedings for this Symposium continue the on-going tradition to provide all of us with a valuable and useful addition to our reference library. We hope that within its covers, you will find the most up to date scientific and clinical information regarding the use of ceramic solutions to address wear related problems in Orthopedic Surgery. This is the first time that the symposium takes place in Italy. The reason we chose Italy and in particular Rome is obvious as CeramTec has had a long term and close relationship with the Italian. CeramTec is pleased that our Symposium Chairmen, Professors F. Benazzo and F. Falez have collaborated with us in the preparation and in th the execution of Bioceramics and Alternative Bearings in Joint Arthroplasty - 11 ® International BIOLOX Symposium.
