What we propose

We are happy to invite foreign surgeons to share their ideas, knowledge and expertise.

The Romanian Shoulder and Elbow Society (SRUC) is a society made up of orthopedic surgeons specialized in or with a special interest in shoulder and elbow surgery.

The annual congress aims to serve as a forum where people interested in this field can chat, exchange ideas and experience and present the results of their research in shoulder and elbow surgery.

Shaping the future through Excellence Together.

SRUC

The company aims to support and develop any activity that leads to the development of knowledge and the improvement of the quality of shoulder and elbow surgery.
Every year we aim to offer scholarships and organize fellowships to attend relevant courses in the field
We want to increase the degree of correct information of patients regarding shoulder and elbow disorders
