I am pleased to welcome you to our new website. It has been a long time coming but it is finally here! The main aim of the website is to improve communication between the Executive and the Membership of the South African Arthroplasty Society. We see the website as a resource to inform our members and to this end, we have included the South African guidelines for hip and knee arthroplasty on the website. We also envisage that it will foster communication amongst members and we hope to develop chat forums to address specific burning topics.
There is a general page which, is accessible to members and the general public and we plan to have a South African map with locations for all our members should a patient wish to contact the offices of a member. In addition, there is a Members only section, which currently has information relating to Global fees. In time this section will also include a “help” area where members can post interesting or complex cases and problems for discussion, advice and to illustrate learning points.
Please spend time on the website, interact with it and most importantly share with us your opinions and thoughts on how we can best serve you and improve the website.
President of the South African Arthroplasty Society
