The South African Orthopaedic Journal

The South African Orthopaedic Journal (SAOJ), previously known as the SA Orthopaedic Journal, is the official journal of the South African Orthopaedic Association (SAOA). It is a non-profit, peer-reviewed scientific publication. The objectives of the Association include the advancement of the science and art of Orthopaedic Surgery in South Africa and the SAOJ serves to fulfill this objective.

It provides South African Orthopaedic Surgeons with a platform to have their work published, and for their colleagues and others involved in Orthopaedics, such as neurosurgeons, to keep abreast of what is happening in our hospitals and consulting rooms.

The journal has a local Editorial Board of prominent SA orthopaedic surgeons, and enjoys the added value of having an international Editorial Board as well. Together they ensure that the content is relevant and applicable to South Africa, while at the same time providing insight into what is happening worldwide in orthopaedics.

The journal is accredited, academic, professional, and is a source for continuous medical education for our registrars.
