The Annual Meeting of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons addresses a broad array of scientific topics such as implant design, outcomes, surgical techniques and complications of primary and revision total joint arthroplasty (TJA) for hip and knee surgeons. The meeting addresses the latest socioeconomic issues in health care. Special courses are also offered for residents, non-physician team members and hospital administrators. Held in Dallas in November each year, the Annual Meeting attracts more than 2,000 attendees.

The Guest Society Program

AAHKS is committed to increasing the presence of international societies, their scientific research, and their members at our Annual Meeting to ensure we bring international perspectives and expertise to our members. At our 2015 Annual Meeting, we started the 1st Annual Guest Society Program, where we invited arthroplasty societies from across the globe to partner with AAHKS and attend our Annual Meeting.

We look forward to future Guest Societies joining our program each year to expand the reach of arthroplasty research and exchanges internationally to the mutual benefit of all organizations involved.

2017 Guest Societies:
Colombian Orthopaedic and Traumatology Society (SCCOT)
European Hip Society (EHS)

The Guest Society Fellow from EHS will be Eduardo Garcia-Cimbrelo from Spain. Read more here. We look forward to Dr Garcia-Cimbrelo’s report later int he year to be published in our EHS Newsletter.
