We were fortunate to travel to and attend the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) 2022 in Dallas, Texas. Joining over 4000 other attendees from around the world we had the opportunity to speak with many clients and surgeons in the Orthopaedic field. When we were not manning the stand we were able to attend a wide array of scientific topics from surgical techniques, implant design as well as understand complications of primary and revision Total Joint Arthroplasty (TJA) and how our Enztec instruments can help. It was an opportune time to also understand changes in social economic environment and how these impact the orthpaedic sector.
AAHKS mission was established in 1991 to advance hip and knee patient care through education, advocacy, research and outreach. It was clear at AAHKS that the founders are committed to this mission with every attendee having access to high quality hip and knee care insights.
We were fortunate to hear from Dr Robert Pearl, AAHKS keynote speaker who is reknowned for being one of the "most powerful physician leaders in the nation". Coming to the conference we had heard Dr. Pearl is a highly sought speaker due to his sound analysis of the shortcomings of the American healthcare system and viable proposals to improve it. And he did not disappoint. His impressive career has seen him lead more than 10,000 physicians and 38,000 employees. And it shows when he is able to beautifully articulate the challenges orthopaedic surgeons face today.
Enztec was so glad to participate in such a prestigious event and we absolutely loved catching up with both existing and new customers in a business and personal sense. We are already looking forward to AAHKS in 2023.
