It is a great pleasure and honor for welcoming you to this scientific meeting of Indonesian Hip and Knee Society (IHKS) combined meeting with Indonesian Distraction Osteogenesis Club (I-DOC) from August 23rd – 27th, 2017 at this beautiful city of Jakarta.
Last September 2016 in Solo, together with other Orthopaedic experts who are interested in this field, we had already formed I-DOC (Indonesian Distraction Osteogenesis Club), a peer group that aims to introduce and develop the distraction osteogenesis technique to better help patients with severe deformity or bone loss in lower or upper extremity. This club has already been recognized by Prof. Dr. M. Hidayat, SpOT(K) as Chairman of Orthopaedic Collegium, and according to his advice, this newborn club was placed under IHKS division. While IHKS reconstruct joint (arthroplasty), I-DOC reconstruct bone other than joint.
We gladly invites all of our colleagues to join us in this club, to discuss, research and to become expert in distraction osteogenesis field, so then we can provide better care for our patients.
Lastly, I hope this meeting will provide you the latest and finest development of orthopaedic issue, especially in hip and knee managemnet.
Thank you for your attention
