WELCOME TO #ISAKOS2019 IN CANCUN On behalf of the community of ISAKOS, we welcome you to the 12th Biennial
ISAKOS Congress!
The ISAKOS Congress embodies the fraternity and international exchange of ideas that ISAKOS is known for.
Cancun is located on the northeast coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. The city is surrounded by the breathtaking Caribbean Sea, soft coral sands, and the striking shade of turquoise that reflects from its crystal-clear
waters. The mystical ruins take you on an incredible journey back to the Mayan civilization. The archaeological zone of El Rey or El Templo del Alacrán (the Temple of the Scorpion) will amaze you. If you are into nature, you’ll love Xel-Ha, a local natural aquarium. Visiting the Secret River will take you closer to the Xibalbá, the Mayan underworld, while Xcaret, the most important eco-archaeological park in the country, will offer its lush jungle charm. It is easy to see why Cancun is such a popular destination and a great location for an ISAKOS Congress.
The five-day ISAKOS Congress will include a myriad of educational opportunities. The meeting provides a variety of new and cutting edge surgical techniques and approaches to clinical management, combined with overviews of current controversies in orthopaedic practice.
The ISAKOS Congress will begin with a full day of pre-courses on Saturday, May 11th. Pre-Course day will include six, half-day courses on a variety of topics ranging from sports medicine, the knee, and the shoulder. Two of which, will be presented in Spanish—one focused on knee surgical techniques, and the other on shoulder techniques. We encourage you to consider attending Pre-Course day, and have included a description of each course in this Newsletter on page 16.
