The Berlin International Shoulder Course 2021 will be held in Berlin, Germany, from 7th to 9th on January 2021 and we invite you to participate in this academic event online!
Dear colleagues and friends,
due to the coronavirus pandemic the Berlin International Shoulder Course (BISC) has been postponed to January 7th – 9th, 2021. This date is fixed so please put it into your agenda!
Two aspects are clear – first, we won´t be back to a normal life in early 2021 and second, BISC will be the first international shoulder event in the upcoming year. These two facts motivate us to provide you an educational event of highest scientific quality after the New Year Holidays.
It is time to reflect and ask ourselves what we really have achieved during the last decades using new technologies, sophisticated implants, and so-called “modern surgical techniques”. What have been the true milestones of arthroscopic and open shoulder reconstructive procedures including rotator cuff repair, instability surgery, AC-Joint reconstruction etc.?
A second focus of BISC will be the management of complications. With increasing numbers of primary interventions, revision surgery still represents an underestimated problem that is mainly solved in specialized centers. Diagnostic strategies and therapeutic options including salvage procedures will be presented during the meeting.
Video demonstrations, re-live surgeries and mini-battles with international and national experts will complement the scientific lectures.
On behalf of the scientific committee, we are looking forward to your participation to the Berlin International Shoulder Course (BISC)!

Professor LU’s original, modified soft fixation Latarjet procedure has greatly simplified this most difficult arthroscopic procedure in the industry, reducing the risks and making it possible for general surgeons to perform the procedure.
Professor LU modified PUB technology makes the repair of small and medium rotator cuffs quicker and easier and is widely available in China.
