The Mayo Arthroplasty Conference is the largest joint replacement conference on the island of Ireland. The conference is an annual event and is now in its nineth year (qualifying for 8 CPD points). The faculty is composed of prominent orthopaedic surgeons from Ireland, mainland Europe and the United States. There is an emphasis on covering new technological advances and current controversies in the fields of hip and knee replacement surgery. In 2016 the Mayo Arthroplasty Conference co hosted the annual general meeting of the Irish American Orthopaedic Society (http://www.iaos.net/) who joined us for their academic meeting on Friday the 15th of April. The IAOS lifetime achievement award was also presented to Dr Peter Sharkey of the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia by his excellency Kevin O Malley, Ambassador of the United States to Ireland.
