The International Society for Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery
was founded 2000 in Davos, Switzerland.
The purpose of The International Society for Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery, a non-profit organization, is to bring together those individuals throughout the world, who, by their contributions and activities in the areas of research, clinical study, and clinical use, have indicated or are indicating interest in computer assisted orthopaedic surgery.
It will serve as a forum for the exchange of information of both an investigative and clinical nature which relates to preoperative planning, execution and postoperative follow up by means of computer assistance.
The Society aims to promote a new partnership between orthopaedic surgeons and technologists as a necessary basis for the successful integration of computer assisted surgical tools and techniques into the daily clinical routine.
CAOS-International seeks to accomplish these goals by holding one annual meeting and related workshops.
