Now in its 7th year, The Digital Orthopaedic Conference San Francisco (DOCSF) in partnership with the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) will bring you THE DOCSF EXPERIENCE, our flagship premier event focused on the application and exploration of digital technologies in Musculoskeletal care brought to you from the heart of Silicon Valley.

After an extraordinary exploration of the Digital Future of Orthopaedics in 2022, in 2023, DOCSF will explore the Digital Future of Outpatient Surgery. Together with our community of tech giants, technological wizards, creative innovators, futurists, startups, venture capitalists, doctors, and industry and hospital teams, we will dive into the digital transformation of the ASC.

Dive into the future of orthopaedics.

The Digital Orthopaedics Conference San Francisco (DOCSF) has been radically redesigned to create an immersive look into the future of musculoskeletal care, outline the transformational tools needed to transition to digital orthopaedics, and highlight the translation research providing the evidence for change.

Why Attend

The future of orthopaedics, like healthcare and pretty much the rest of the economy, will be entirely rebuilt using a digital infrastructure the outlines of which are becoming increasingly clear. However, it is nearly impossible to find a place where all the information you need to understand this transformation is curated for an audience of surgical specialists. Coming to DOCSF means you will be ready to Join the Revolution!

What to

Panels that change your mind, lectures that broaden your horizons, and symposia that bring it all together in one simple story. And DOCSF Science will be back to present the most cutting- edge research providing the evidence for change.

And since this is, after all, DOCSF, expect the unexpected.

At DOCSF23, we will tackle AI technology focused on efficiency and productivity in the ASC, trends in med-tech devices shaping the next generation of surgical tools, the future of patient experience in Web 3.0, and how the blockchain and DAOs will forever change ASC business models.

Together, we will look at the place that MSK will have in a future health paradigm where the ubiquity of the metaverse, everyday autonomous robots, effective gamification in care pathways, and interactive chatbot driven holograms are embedded in our care models. We will ask about EMRs, the impact of PE firms, how tech can address the Great Resignation, and how to calculate ROI for tech investments in the ASC setting.

We have designed an entirely new experience intended to empower you with the knowledge, skills, connections, and leads that will enable you to prepare for the future that is certain to come (how do we know… well, we have been right so far…)

New in 2023 is a half-day pre-conference session dedicated to several, parallel, long format events. One, with our incredible partners at the design firm IDEO, will be structured for teams to tackle and solve a challenge they have while learning design thinking and brainstorming skills from the firm that invented the process. Another session will be dedicated to rapid fire, MSK focused, startup showcases. Yet another session will create space to discuss the ethics associated with the digitalization of healthcare; while in one other session, we will consider the major shifts occurring in the economy and the short and long-term impacts on digital health.

More details as we finalize our speakers, partners, cutting-edge exhibitors, experiences, and surrounding events that will make DOCSF 23: THE DIGITAL FUTURE OF OUTPATIENT SURGERY another remarkable experience for our community of leading thinkers (yep: you will remark on it to everyone for weeks after!)
