Welcome to the home page of the International Society for Hip Arthroscopy (ISHA).
Our Society has been the creation of many individuals, each united by a common interest in the expanding arena of hip arthroscopic surgery.
Officially formed in Paris (France) in May 2008, ISHA's Founding Members represent but a few of the many individuals around the world who are interested in this evolving area of hip surgery.
At its outset, hip arthroscopy attracted the surgical and scientific innovator, the clinician with an eye for the unusual idea.
Instrumentation was often handmade and company support was lacking. Now, training courses around the world are frequently oversubscribed, peer-reviewed publications are increasing in number and hip arthroscopic surgery is well established.
ISHA's role is to provide a focal point for its further development, to be a Society whose vision, as we highlight above, is to be the premier international society for education and research in arthroscopic hip surgery. We seek like-minded individuals to join us, subject to our membership criteria. We would welcome hearing from you.
