European Hip Society
European Hip Society 14th International Congress
Lille (France) ‒ 1-2 Oct. 2020

EHS Lille 2020

Two decades after the Beaune meeting in 1998, the 14th European Hip Society International Congress is back to France and  will take place in the prestigious city of Lille, chaired by its President Dr Jean-Alain Epinette, orthopaedic surgeon from the Lille University, and past president of the French Hip and Knee Society. The organizing committee will address the invaluable expertise of Luigi Zagra, Klaus-Peter Günther and Manel Ribas, in addition to French “key surgeons” such as Henri Migaud, chief of Orthopaedic Department in Lille University, André Ferreira, Sebastien Lustig and Nicolas Reina.

This 14th congress of EHS will welcome Canada as our guest nation, and will  be set up in partnership with the “HIP Toulouse” organization.

Lille is the fourth largest city in France at the heart of Europe. As well as being an international crossroads and dynamic financial centre , Lille, as also a city of art and history, was designated the European Capital of Culture in 2004 and continues to provide a rich cultural and artistic experience, boasting a preserved heritage, a warm and friendly atmosphere and a thriving cultural life. The Congress centre  “Lille Grand Palais” is a perfect venue, located in the city centre , at just 10 min. walk from the TGV Station, easily reachable by air, by rail or by road. With 1 million visitors per year, it offers customized offers and packages, and offers great adaptability and flexibility of rooms and spaces.


The European Hip Society aims to provide the best knowledge in all hip-related topics. At Lille 2020, we will be proud to stay at the cutting edge of advances in Orthopaedics. The program is based upon the three pillars of hip surgery: “basic”, “current state of the art” and “what’s next?”, while focusing specifically on the true and false innovations within these sections. In such a way, symposia, guest lectures, presentations, posters and round tables will address past, current and new trends in hip management for primaries and revisions. In addition, full sessions will be devoted to the future with robotics, virtual and augmented reality, and some promising new devices to help us in our surgical practice… The future will be in Lille!


On behalf the Organizing Committee, we right now look forward to welcoming each of you to EHS 2020.
