The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons represents over 1,350 members, primarily total joint replacement surgeons, including most of the leading doctors in this rapidly-growing specialty. (Demand for knee replacements is projected to triple by 2030; double for hip replacements.)
AAHKS therefore represents the most concentrated, targeted market for specialists in adult reconstruction and total joint arthroplasty in the world.
Established in 1991, the mission of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) is to provide leadership in advocacy, education and research to achieve excellence in hip and knee patient care. The AAHKS Annual Meeting (held in the fall) addresses a broad array of scientific topics, such as implant design, results, surgical techniques and complications of primary and revision TJA, as well as the latest information available on socioeconomic issues affecting your specialty.
