What is the ACCART?
ACCART stands for "Asociación Colombiana de Cirugía Artroscópica", in English "Colombian Association of Arthroscopic Surgery". This organization is dedicated to the promotion of arthroscopy and minimally invasive procedures in surgery, especially in the field of orthopedics. ACCART brings together professionals involved in the development, education and research in arthroscopic surgery to promote knowledge exchange and improve patient care.
ACCART helps improve medical care worldwide by promoting innovative techniques and procedures in arthroscopic surgery. Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique in which small incisions are made in the skin to insert an arthroscope (a type of optic) and surgical instruments. This technique is commonly used to diagnose and treat joint problems and offers many advantages over open surgical procedures, including less pain, shorter recovery times and a lower risk of infection.
The collaboration of experts from different countries and cultural backgrounds within ACCART makes it possible to achieve global medical advances and improve the quality of life of patients worldwide. Through international events, such as the ACCART Congress, current research findings and innovative therapeutic approaches are presented, which in turn contributes to better patient care and improved medical practice.
