Developmental Hip Dysplasia – A Problem Solved?
It is a great privilege to give this EFORT honorary lecture in Copenhagen 2011 in memory of Professor Erwin Morscher (Fig. 1). He was a real son of Basle, born there, educated at medical school there and later Professor and Chair of Orthopaedic Surgery of Basle University. He was one of the founding fathers of EFORT and a member of that first steering group which met in Marentino, Italy in 1992 (Fig. 2). He succeeded Jacques DuParc and Mike Freeman as President of the infant EFORT.
