European Rheumatoid Arthritis Surgical Society ERASS
Since 1979, the year our Society was founded, a lot of things around have changed.
What did not change is addressing the members with Friends !
Since the ERASS association is only 31 years old, many opportunities are still open for ERASS. ERASS started as a subcommittee of EULAR in 1977, in which surgeons involved in arthritis surgery discussed the holistic approach, which they thought to be imperative for the rheuma patient.
Three decades later, this approach is beginning to be ( again) state-of-the-art in orthopaedic patient care. Within the orthopaedic community the last decade showed a strong tendency towards a more technical, mono extremity or even mono joint surgical patient approach.
