SICOT Congresses

Every year, SICOT holds a congress which attracts thousands of clinicians and researchers from all over the world. Scientific papers and lectures are presented in the traditional fields; world-class invited speakers provide contemporary thought on the latest concepts as well as on conservative and surgical treatment methods. They provide a forum for presentation of original work and for education.
