What is ACCART?
ACCART stands for “Asociación Colombiana de Cirugía Artroscópica”, in English “Colombian Association of Arthroscopic Surgery.” This organization is dedicated to promoting arthroscopy and minimally invasive surgical procedures, particularly in the area of orthopedics. ACCART brings together professionals who are engaged in the development, education and research in arthroscopic surgery to promote knowledge sharing and improve patient care.
ACCART contributes to improving medical care worldwide by promoting innovative techniques and procedures in arthroscopic surgery. Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique that involves making small incisions in the skin to insert an arthroscope (a type of optic) and surgical instruments. This technique is often used to diagnose and treat joint problems and offers numerous benefits compared to open surgical procedures, such as less pain, shorter recovery times and a lower risk of infection.
The collaboration of experts from different countries and cultural backgrounds within the framework of ACCART makes it possible to achieve global medical progress and improve the quality of life of patients worldwide. International events, such as the ACCART Congress, present current research results and innovative therapeutic approaches, which in turn contribute to better patient care and improved medical practice.
