Courses for Endoprosthetics and Osteosynthesis
Already since 1986 there have been regular advanced educational events for operation techniques under the supervision of Professor Dr. Heinz Mittelmeier, who was ordinary for orthopaedics at the university medical centre Homburg-Saar. ACP-angle plates, pressure plates, hip endoprosthetisis and a variety of other operation techniques have been discussed theoretically and practically. In cooperation with Max Wullimann, the former owner of OSTEO AG, Heinz Mittelmeier developed a structured, internationally aimed course concept as a basis for the AFOR foundation. Back then, and very foresightful, his goal was to establish advanced training for orthopaedists and trauma surgeons on a high level with a major practical approach.
