We cordially invite you to the 13th Biennial ISAKOS Congress in Cape Town, South Africa. The ISAKOS Congress continues to be considered the premier international meeting, providing a unique opportunity for attendees to share, discuss and learn the latest advancements in arthroscopy, knee surgery and sports medicine.
The five-day ISAKOS Congress includes a myriad of educational opportunities. The meeting provides a variety of new and cutting edge surgical techniques and approaches to clinical management, combined with overviews of current controversies in orthopaedic practice.
Abstracts will be considered for both podium presentations and electronic posters. In addition, exceptional abstracts will be considered for several ISAKOS Awards for outstanding clinical or laboratory research.
Cape Town is the oldest city in South Africa, colloquially named the Mother City. This city has it all--from the natural wonder of Table Mountain to award-winning wines, and breathtaking scenic beauty. The exquisite flavors of local cuisine are showcased in a diverse range of culinary offerings in Cape Town and its surrounding five regions; Cape Garden Route & Klein Karoo, Cape Overberg, Cape West Coast, Cape Winelands and the Cape Karoo. Cape Town offers something for everyone, and we hope you will join us there. A variety of Congress social events will also be offered including a Welcome Reception, a spouse and guest program and tour assistance.
You are a vital part of the 13th Biennial ISAKOS Congress! We hope you will plan to participate in the international experience that is the ISAKOS Congress.
