This meeting is the first in an annual series of major scientific meetings planned by the International Society
for Hip Arthroscopy (ISHA). The inaugural meeting will focus on the rapidly changing field of arthroscopic
hip surgery, specifically current research and outcomes data associated with both common and new procedures.
The international faculty is widely experienced in hip arthroscopic surgery and able to provide the very latest
thoughts and ideas in this field. The paper presentations will encourage original research in hip arthroscopy and
an improved understanding of techniques used in this challenging surgery.
