Welcome to ISTA.

ISTA is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the art and science of joint replacement around the world. Every year we host a congress where the best clinicians, engineers, researchers, and industry members from across the globe come together to present and discuss leading edge work in the field of arthroplasty.

I warmly invite you to participate at our 27th Annual Congress, ISTA 2014, which will convene at the Hotel Okura in Kyoto, Japan from 24-27 September.

Further details regarding our next congress can be found on our ISTA 2014 page.
