The South African Paediatric Orthopaedic Society (SAPOS) is a subgroup of the South African Orthopaedic Association (SAOA). Our core membership consists of orthopaedic surgeons and allied health workers with a special interest and passionate dedication to the care of children with musculoskeletal disorders. SAPOS promotes quality, safety and access to care for all children. We are committed to research, to continuing medical education to all orthopaedic surgeons and to the dissemination of knowledge to parents and patients.
