Dear esteemed colleagues,
It is an honor for us to carry out the special Biennial IHKS Meeting, which is entering its 6th meeting since the establishment of IHKS itself. We say that it is a special meeting because we always try to present world-class speakers with the most current topics, followed by workshops and Instructional Course Lecture that has been catered for our colleagues with interest in hip and knee.
The theme of the 6th IHKS Meeting is “Redefining Hip and Knee Surgery: Innnovation in Arthropalsty, Sports Medicine, Trauma and Infection”. It is our pleasure to be able to conduct a joint meeting with and Asia Pacific Infection Society (APIS). This shows that IHKS and its meetings have been recognized and trusted to be a combined meeting with leading organizations in Asia Pacific region.
The event will be held in Hotel Tentrem Yogyakarta, an Indonesia hotel with strong Javanese culture influence, on the 21st until 25th of August 2019. It is not a coincidence that this meeting will be held in Yogyakarta, a city known for its history but also known as City of Scholars (Kota Pelajar). Yogyakarta is filled with endless appeals, from the magnificent Borobudur and Prambanan temple, the Keraton (Sultan’s Palace), and local art and tradition that are still very much preserved in this city. Hence, we would like to appreciate the support given by the Department of Orthopedic and Traumatology, Medical Faculty of Universitas Gadjah Mada for supporting our event.
We’re looking forward for our fellow researchers, scientists, academics, and students to interact with the orthopedic expert in the world and Asia Pacific region, while updating their knowledge about not only hip and knee, but also infection.
