The Inion Polku™ webinar program 2021 on bioabsorbable surgical implants

Inion has started a new education program called Inion Polku™. The program is built to provide up-to-date information about Inion’s bioabsorbable surgical implants and their clinical use.

As part of the program we have launched a new webinar series which has been designed to provide useful information about the Inion technologies, products and their use in surgical applications. During this webinar program we have the opportunity to listen to surgeon guest presenters as well as our own product experts share their experiences with our products.

Please see the Inion Polku™ webinars below for more details.

Mr. Happonen is one of the pioneers of bioabsorbable implant development with over 20 years of experience so his knowledge on the area is massive.

Dr. Halimi’s Surgeon to Surgeon Education Programme in Paediatric Orthopaedics

We are starting a clinical education programme in paediatric orthopaedics hosted by paediatric orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Patrice Halimi. The Surgeon to Surgeon (S2S) education programme takes place monthly in Aix-en-Provence at Hospital Privé de Provence in France. We were originally planning on starting the programme in Spring 2020, but due to the coronavirus pandemic we have had to postpone the launch. We’ll be informing you about the new starting time as soon as it is decided.

Dr. Halimi has an extensive experience in using Inion Freedom™ biodegradable implants in paediatric orthopaedic surgery. This is an excellent opportunity to learn Dr. Halimi’s surgical techniques in paediatric orthopaedic patients. The 1,5 days’ programme will include live surgeries and education on Inion Freedom products, their surgical techniques and indications, features and benefits.
