The ISHA Annual Scientific Meeting

Each year, ISHA – The Hip Preservation Society hosts its prestigious Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) – a wonderful opportunity for orthopaedic surgeons, arthroscopists, sports medicine physicians, residents, fellows and physical therapists to come together to network and exchange knowledge, best practice and research results in the field of hip preservation.

Over the years, the annual meeting has grown in attendance and diversity, now drawing in over 500 arthroscopic and open hip surgeons, hip preservation and rehabilitation professionals from all over the world. The engaging scientific programme is always accompanied by an exciting social programme, which provides a flavour of the host city. An overview of previous ASMs and their content can be found under Past Meetings.

In keeping with ISHA’s remit as an international society, the Annual Scientific Meeting moves location each year, rotating around the different regions of the world. Please see Upcoming Meetings for information on upcoming ASM locations.

ISHA ASMs are open to both members and non-members, but ISHA members enjoy a significant discount on registration, as well as post-event access to captured content. For further details on member and early registration discounts, please visit Upcoming Meetings.
