Founding Members

In 1978, the following Orthopaedic Surgeons first met as a group, naming themselves the Australian Knee Club. Since then, the group has expanded well past the ambitions and expectations of those founding members, and accordingly, the group has since been renamed the Australian Knee Society.

It is now an integral part of the Australian Orthopaedic Association, being a specialty group within the overarching umbrella of that Association. The success of the current Society is a testament to the foresight of those founding members, and the work that they put in to develop and expand the society to its present state.
