AAHKS extended invitations to international medical societies to attend this year’s Annual Meeting. Hip and knee surgeons from 22 countries are attending including Willem van der Merwe, MD, President of the International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine in South Africa. Dr. van der Merwe first met AAHKS First Vice President, Jay R. Lieberman, MD and AAHKS Secretary and International Committee Chair, William J. Maloney, MD when they were participating in the ABC Exchange Fellowship in Cape Town in 1997. This is Dr. van der Merwe’s first visit to the AAHKS Annual Meeting where he said that he is looking forward to making connections with his hip and knee colleagues.
