This week sees the annual running of the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) meeting. The event, which takes place from April 25-27, takes place in San Antonio, Texas and comprises its usual healthy treatment of all things arthroscopy. AANA claims to each year raise the educational bar, and this year looks like being no exception, with state of the art clinical sessions included in a program crafted by the AANA Program Committee chaired by Robert A. Pedowitz, MD, PhD and the Education Committee chaired by Benjamin Shaffer, MD.
This year, AANA is collaborating with North American colleagues from Mexico, the 2013 Guest Nation and the Guest Society AMECRA, (Asociación Mexicana de Cirugia Reconstructiva Articular y Arthroscopia).
The meeting will feature simultaneous English to Spanish translation in the general sessions including three of the daily Instructional Course Lectures.
The AANA 2013 Annual Meeting includes a full program of daily sessions featuring state of the art, peer – reviewed original scientific research papers, compelling Feature Lectures presented by world renowned master instructors, clinical case-based discussion panels, and Practical Pearls Spotlights focusing on essential take home pearls, highlighting arthroscopic techniques.
In addition, 28 Instructional Course Lectures will be featured, including three courses delivered exclusively in Spanish.
Returning this year, based on member feedback, are the popular “Roundtable” discussion sessions. These sessions pair two faculty experts with 18 participants sharing clinical cases in a stimulating, interactive format.
The 2013 AANA Annual Meeting promises to be an exceptional educational event with an all-star international lineup including four exciting keynote speakers.
