The 4th ISAKOS Knee Course and 8th Pune Knee Course was held from April 19 – 21, 2018 at the JW Marriott in Pune, India. The event was graced by the participation of about 1000 orthopaedic surgeons — delegates from India, South- East Asia and the Middle East; 13 International Faculty and 19 National Faculty. Dr. Charles Brown from the International Knee and Joint Center, Abu Dhabi was the Scientific Chairman while Dr. Sachin Tapasvi, Dr. Parag Sancheti and Dr. Nilesh Kamat were the Course Chairmen. This academic extravaganza was organized for the eighth year in a row and the popularity keeps growing every year. Since 2017, the format has been changed to have more focus on dedicated issues and this year’s event was focused on PCL, MCL, PLC and Patellofemoral joint injuries. This course provided an excellent opportunity for the delegates to learn the nuances of arthroscopy and interact with masters in the field from all across the globe. The course was approved and supported by ISAKOS, APOA and other various regional academic groups in India.
