We are glad to announce that “The 10th Congress of Asia-Pacific Knee Society” will be held at Kimdaejung Convention Center in Gwangju, Korea, on November 8-10th, 2018. Knee surgery has undergone a tremendous evolution in Asia-Pacific region in the last decades. With newer technologies, patient outcomes have improved and patients are able to return to their work earlier.

The collaboration between the industrial development and knee surgeons has helped in innovations for the benefit of our patients and to improve their quality of life. APKS has been an integral part of this process over the decades. We hope you could share current updates with various knee topics related to sports medicine, arthroscopy, joint replacement and its alternatives, articular cartilage restoration. And we are confident that this congress would offers the perfect platform for orthopedists and researchers to exchange professional scientific knowledge and valuable clinical experiences. Also, it will be a significant experience to share friendship with one another, as we are firmly rooted in a belief that we can be better by working together.

The program will include various knee topics related to sports medicine (meniscus, ligament, patellar and extensor mechanism disorders, etc.), arthroscopy, joint replacement and its alternatives (total knee arthroplasty, unicondylar knee arthroplasty, knee around osteotomy, etc.), articular replica rolex cartilage restoration (stem cell procedure, microfracture, OATs, etc.). Diagnosis, treatment, and novel techniques of these topics are also be widely discussed, so that this congress will be an opportunity to interact with orthopedic surgeons from many part of the world.

We are very much trying to do our best for a memorable and fantastic meeting. Looking forward to meeting you all at November, 2018.
