Brånemark Memorial Symposium

In a fitting final salute to the father of osseointegration, researchers and clinicians from all over the globe gathered at the end of September at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, to honor Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark.

The P-I Brånemark Memorial Symposium not only chronicled the genesis of osseointegration, it also provided an enticing glimpse into the future of implant-related treatment.

Speakers at the gala dinner preceding the symposium returned again and again to Brånemark’s many philanthropic activities, not least of all his clinic in Bauru, Brazil.

Many an accident or cancer survivor has received a new lease on life thanks to the P-I Brånemark Institute there. It has become a world reference organization for osseointegration R&D as it applies to extra-oral, intra-oral and amputee rehabilitation. Learn more about its work and what you can do to help.
