Learn About AAHKS

Established in 1991, the mission of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) is to advance hip and knee patient care through education and advocacy.

The AAHKS Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for members of the profession to come together and educate each other on the best practices in arthroplasty. The agenda addresses a broad array of scientific topics such as implant design, outcomes, surgical techniques and complications of primary and revision total joint arthroplasty (TJA). The latest information available on socioeconomic issues affecting our specialty is another highlight of the meeting.
