Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to invite you to the 15th TUSYAD (Turkish Society of Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy and Knee Surgery) Congress to be organized in September 10-13 2020 in Cappadocia, Turkey.

The TUSYAD Congress is the premier scientific activity of our society and is organized biannually. The venue this year is Cappadocia and we hope that this location will add innovation and charm to our congress.

The first TUSYAD Congress was held in 1991, and has steadily improved with its excellent scientific content, contributions of international and national speakers who are leaders in their fields, enriched with lively social and cultural activities.

Our congress aims to bring our colleagues together to discuss current developments in the field of arthroscopy & knee surgery and is an important platform that attracts attention with its high quality scientific content and robust participation.

Treatment of sports injuries, arthroscopic surgery, and especially knee surgery will be the main topics In addition; shoulder, elbow, hip, foot-ankle, wrist-hand arthroscopic surgery and cartilage regeneration technologies which have attracted increased interest in recent years, will be comprehensively discussed in our congress.

Lunch workshops and satellite symposiums will be organized by the pharmaceutical and orthopaedic industry, which will showcase current technological developments. Live surgical demonstrations in cadavers, performed by master surgeons will be the high points of our congress. We are looking forward to learning from the experience of our distinguished faculty.

Cappodocia is unique in the world with its geographical properties. The Cappadocia region is the place where nature and history beautifully come together. Its exquisite rock formations, shaped by the nature during the prehistorical period, were subsequently converted to houses and churches and decorated with frescoes during the early period of Christianity. The Byzantine artwork inside the churches, has led to the acceptance of Goreme National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

As the Organizing Committee of the Congress, we are honoured to host you in the unique atmosphere of Cappadocia in September 2020, and welcome all of you to our congress.
Best regards,

Professor Sinan Karaoglu, M.D.
Congress President
