We are pleased to invite you to the 2022 Annual Meeting of the European Society of Temporomandibular Joint Surgeons on Thursday 28th April and Friday 29th April 2022, at the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) in Groningen, the Netherlands.  After our successful meeting in Marburg in May 2019, this will be the first live meeting in 3 years due to the COVID pandemic.  Due to the current situation, we are again not able to hold an ‘open’ meeting due to continued regulations. The meeting attendance is limited to both ESTMJS and ASTMJS members together with candidates for ESTMJS membership only.

The overall theme of the meeting will be ‘From injections to replacement – a scopic view’ with key-note lectures related to minimal invasive surgery, open joint surgery and total joint replacement developments.
