In October 2014, Dr Andreas Oberholzer visited Iran. At the Iranian Orthopaedic Annual Conference in Tehran, he reported on his experience and knowledge around artificial knee and hip joints. His live surgery, in which Dr Andreas Oberholzer implanted an artificial knee joint, was broadcast from the University Hospital to the conference hall, where it was watched and discussed by about 250 Iranian orthopaedic surgeons. Possible surgical procedures for various patients with knee and hip problems were then discussed in case presentations.

The focus of Dr Andreas Oberholzer’s presentation was surgical technique for the anterior minimally invasive approach in total hip replacement.
