IPSG

The International Patellofemoral Study Group 

The IPSG provides members with a forum to advance understanding of the patellofemoral joint. Unlike some more traditional formal orthopedic surgery organizations, IPSG is truly a "multi-disciplinary study group" at present with common goals and a diverse yet focused group of orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists and basic scientists.

 

IPSG was founded in 1995 when "a group of friends" with proven interest in the academic study of patellofemoral problems agreed to meet informally to gain mutual understanding of the vagaries and intricacies of this often misunderstood part of the knee.  The concept was to meet in attractive places for everyone's benefit and pleasure while remaining academically rigorous, gathering the right colleagues from "around the globe" and keeping the group small enough that easy discussion and debate would be possible. 

 


IPSG Mission Statement

 

We endeavor to advance and disseminate the understanding of patellofemoral disorders by meeting regularly to present and evaluate multidisciplinary scholarly research and to exchange and stimulate new ideas.
