European Hip Society

Reginald ELSON was asked by the President (Michael FREEMAN) and the Secretary (Jacques DUPARC) of the Congress Board of the European Federation of Orthopedics to work on the formation of a European Society for Surgery of the Hip. The European Hip Society was founded in Hamburg on Saturday the 17th of October 1992. At their meeting, the Founder Members decided upon a Constitution.

The object of the Association shall be to provide a forum for the discussion of research, advances in clinical practice and the results of predominantly surgical procedures of all types relating to the hip joint. The Association and its aims shall exclusively and directly uphold public interest according to the provisions of the Austrian tax regulations (non-profit status). First and foremost, the Association shall pursue scientific goals. It shall not primarily pursue economic purposes of its own and shall abstain from political activity. No person may be favored by payments which are contrary to the purpose of the Association. If the Association dissolves or if the non-profit status is lost, the capital of the Society shall be transferred to a non-profit organization to promote the objects.
