The achievement over these ten years has been incredible and I wish to congratulate all those who have contributed to this success and, more particularly, all the Editorial Board. We can look at the future with confidence but our efforts must be sustained.

In my opinion, the coat of arms of ‘International Orthopaedics’ could well bear the motto: Pride and Optimism.


Le chemin parcouru durant ces dix dernières années a été considérable et je tiens à féliciter tous ceux qui ont collaboré à cette réussite, en particulier tout l'Editorial Board. Nous pouvons regarder l'avenir avec confiance, mais les efforts consentis devront se maintenir.

Pour moi, le blason de ‘International Orthopaedics’ pourrait bien être: Fierté et Optimisme.
