European Knee Society

The EKS was created in 2015 in order to group European key opinion leaders in the field of the degenerative knee and knee arthroplasty.
Over 100 knee experts in Europe have in the meantime joined this new society, with the aim to strengthen and consolidate the European knowledge and expertise in this domain.

The main goals of EKS are:

  • to advance knowledge of degenerative knee pathology and knee arthroplasty
  • to provide an appropriate educational setting that maintains the highest level of professional standards in order to promote continuous advancements in professional knowledge and improved treatment of degenerative disorders of the knee and knee arthroplasty
  • to create an optimum environment to enhance education, research and treatment of degenerative knee pathology and arthroplasty
  • to promote and maintain professional standards to provide the best care to patients with degenerative pathology of the knee joint and arthroplasty of the knee.
