SOMOS leads way in wartime and disaster response

By CDR John-Paul H. Rue, MD

The Society of Military Orthopaedic Surgeons (SOMOS) represents a broad spectrum of active duty, retired, and reserve military orthopaedic surgeons. SOMOS members take the lead in many fields of orthopaedic surgery, positively affecting lives and improving patient care in wartime situations in Iraq and Afghanistan, in disaster areas such as Haiti, and in austere environments across the globe. Overseeing the care of wounded military is the primary responsibility of most of our membership.
