We are very proud to inform you that on 25th July 2019 a new orthopaedic Society was founded. The name of this new association is SIAGASCOT, Italian Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery,
Upper Limb Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Cartilage and New Orthopaedic Technologies. This new scientific society is indeed the successful merger of two important Italian orthopaedics
scientific societies, the Italian Arthroscopy Society (SIA) and the Italian Society of Knee Surgery, Arthroscopy, Sport, Cartilage and Orthopaedic Technologies (SIGASCOT), into a single but stronger
association able to develop and intensify education and spreading of knowledge.
One of the primary aims of SIAGASCOT is to unify the Italian scientific orthopaedic universe and to promote the intensification of contacts and public relations with its international partners.
AOTBiH will be one of the most important international Societies for SIAGASCOT.
On the 31st December 2019, SIA and SIGASCOT will stop to exist and from the 1st January 2020,
SIAGASCOT will start its own scientific activity.
On 24-26th September 2020 SIAGASCOT will organize its 1st SIAGASCOT 2020 Annual Meeting in
We hope that in the future AOTBiH will find a helpful and collaborative partner in SIAGASCOT.
