The 6th CAOS-International
Annual Meeting will be held June 21-24, 2006 at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth
in Montréal, Canada.
Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery (CAOS) is one of the fastest growing
new technologies in our field (see the September issue of Orthopaedics
Today). The emergence of CAOS as an important technology in orthopaedics is
being further stimulated by the vigorous introduction of a number of
minimally invasive surgical procedures, many of which can be facilitated by
various CAOS techniques.
The Annual Meeting of CAOS-International is designed to bring together
individuals and groups throughout the world in the areas of research,
clinical study, and clinical use who have indicated and/or are indicating
interest in computer-assisted orthopaedic surgery. It will provide a forum
for the exchange of information of both an investigative and clinical nature
which relates to preoperative planning, intraoperative execution and
postoperative follow up by means of computer assistance. The Annual Meeting
of the Society is aimed at promoting partnerships 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.
