ISAKOS: 2021 Congress in Cape Town, South Africa



The ISAKOS Congress, an in-person meeting being held live in Cape Town, South Africa in late November 2021, provides a variety of new preventative, therapeutic and surgical technique information, allowing participants who attend this meeting in Cape Town to expand their knowledge and enhance their surgical skills. This four-day meeting at the Cape Town International Convention Centre will include a variety of educational opportunities from Sunday through Wednesday, such as surgical demonstrations, paper presentations, debates, global case-based discussions, round-table panel discussions, lectures, symposia and instructional course lectures. Lunchtime sessions, e-posters, technical exhibits and social activities will also be offered to Congress attendees who join ISAKOS for this live meeting. Plus, a 2.5-day Sports Rehabilitation Concurrent Course will be offered starting Saturday afternoon, November 27.

ISAKOS understands the ongoing pandemic creates uncertainty surrounding the possibility of attending an in-person 2021 ISAKOS Congress. While new developments in this dynamic pandemic have the potential to render attending an in-person meeting difficult, ISAKOS is committed to delivering its 2021 Congress in November. We strongly aim to hold an in-person meeting, but please know the Congress will offer virtual participation on these same dates, if necessary. The ISAKOS Congress will definitely be proceeding, in whatever format necessary, and you should therefore feel comfortable planning your submissions, your faculty commitment, and your attendance, in whatever format you are able to do so.
