Today, the last day of EMSOS 2013, it is possible for healthcare professionals particularly interested in Osseointegration to follow lectures on the subject presented by the COO team from Sahlgrenska University Hospital. Rickard Brånemark, director of the Centre of Orthopedic Osseointegration at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, presented an overview of the advancements in the osseointegration treatment from when it was founded until today.

For example he mentioned that the method is very suitable for thumb amputees who can restore up to 80 percent of their functionality. The COO team expects an increase of these patients in the near future.
