Short description

Patients with skeletal dysplasias, syndromes involving the musculoskeletal system or soft bones develop numerous deformities on bones and joints or the spine. Treatment is difficult because of the accompanying short stature and requires the joint efforts of orthopaedic technicians and orthopaedists. Participants learn about aspects of particular relevance for patients as well as treatment challenges. While the individual clinical pictures are rare, the patient group as a whole is large.
