Leading Digital Orthopaedics

The entire Livestream will be translated into Japanese.

At the UCSF Digital Orthopaedics Conference San Francisco (DOCSF), our mission has never waivered: we aim to catalyze the global adoption of digital health tools in musculoskeletal care. As part of this effort, we are incredibly excited to announce a new extension of our family of conferences with the launch of DOCSF JAPAN, which will take its place next to DOCSF VENTURE, and The DOCSF EXPERIENCE.

On March 25, 2023 (JST), DOCSF JAPAN will premiere. Our exceptional faculty from UCSF, Google, UCLA, IDEO, and StartUp Health will cover three main themes: The Future of Orthopaedics, The Digital Transformation Journey, and the Scientific Evidence for Change. They will cover the latest technology that is generating excitement in Digital Health and Spine care, a review of the state of Venture Capital in the US, insight into the exciting world of StartUps tackling orthopaedic care models, and an introduction to Design Thinking from the Legendary Silicon Valley firm IDEO.

DOCSF JAPAN will be available both in English and in Japanese and our audience will be able to participate in live questions and answer sessions with Japanese translation during the event.

This groundbreaking virtual conference is being co-hosted by the visionary Dr. Junichi Kushioka and Dr. Kazuhito Morioka.

DOCSF JAPAN is brought to you thanks to the generous sponsorship of some of the most forward-thinking companies working in Japan: Nipro, NuVasive Japan, and Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting (Japan)

We are also grateful to our supporting partners for DOCSF JAPAN: the Japanese External Trade Organization San Francisco (JETRO SF), the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), and United Japanese Researchers Around the World (UJA).
