Thank You For Joining Us at the 2013 ISAKOS Biennial Congress

ISAKOS would like to thank those who helped make our 9th Biennial Congress a success! The Biennial Congress is a cornerstone of ISAKOS’ mission to “advance the worldwide exchange and dissemination of education, research and patient care in arthroscopy, knee surgery and orthopaedic sports medicine”. The Biennial Congress provides a unique opportunity for an international dialogue with renowned experts.

The ISAKOS Congress is well known in the international community for the unique opportunities it presents to network and discuss ideas with experts from around the world on a variety of specialties. The 2013 ISAKOS Congress brought together thousands of orthopaedic surgeons, allied health personnel, residents, fellows and physical therapists to Toronto.
