Ladies and gentlemen
The « 1st Swiss Orthogeriatrics Day Bern » was a great success, with around 190 participants from 16 different cantons in Switzerland. All occupational groups involved in the treatment of the elderly were represented, and we had a rich and informative interdisciplinary exchange. On Thursday the 31st of October, we were able to build on our previous success with the « 2nd Swiss Orthogeriatrics Day ».
We are planning the « 3rd Swiss Orthogeriatrics Day » in Zurich for Wednesday, 27.10.2021.

Treating the elderly is an exciting challenge for me – as a person, as a scientist and as a surgeon.
Ageing people are like museums: it's not the façade that matters, but the treasures of the interior.
As long as you remain curious, age cannot harm you.
We need to rethink the treatment of fractures in the elderly – it requires interdisciplinary and interprofessional teamwork.
Even at the age of sixty you can still be forty – but only for half-an-hour a day.
Older patients are our future, due solely to demographics. We are all ageing, and may one day be affected by these issues ourselves.
Ageing is a highly interesting process: you think and think and think, and then suddenly you can’t remember anything.
