The EFOST traveling fellowship began with a visit to Lisbon, Portugal, where we were hosted by Henrique Jones. After a long flight (fortunately featuring lay-flat seats!), we checked into our hotel in Lisbon and were ready to get started. After a quick (3 course) lunch, we were off to the operating room where Dr. Jones demonstrated his ACL reconstruction technique as well as a total knee arthroplasty in a younger, active patient with a ceramic femoral implant, assisted by his two residents. After the OR, we were treated to an excellent seafood dinner with his team.
