The Campinas Knee Study Group was born spontaneously in the 80s when a small orthopedic group that was beginning to make knee surgery in the city suggested holding review meetings in the office Dr. Wilson Mello.

One of the pioneers was the very Dr. Wilson Mello, who had just returned to the country after a stint in the United States, where he had learned from Dr. James Andrews to do artroscopoia, the great boom of the moment. At that time, Dr. Mello, with Prof. support Marco Amatuzzi and the Brazilian Society of Knee Surgery, held in Campinas Medical Center two arthroscopy courses. In 1995, the group, which featured Dr. Mello, José Francisco Nunes and Dr. Paulo César Ferreira Penteado, decided to organize III Course of Campinas Knee Surgery, continuing the courses taken in the previous decade. In 1996, Drs. Arthur Telini and Paulo Paes were invited to join the study group and actively participated in the IV Knee Surgery Course organization Campinas. In 1997 began the monthly scientific meetings, calls Journal of Meeting. In 1999, he joined to the initial group Dr. Adriano Marchetto and the following year, Dr. Guilherme Amaral. In 2000, the Campinas Knee Study Group now has a registered legal entity. At this time, Dr. José Olavo Moretzshon had also joined the group and was responsible for creating the website. Two years later the orthopedist Wander E. Brito also joined the group, completing the board with nine members.
