About AAOS Now

As the leading orthopaedic news magazine, AAOS Now offers a unique blend of clinical news and information, advocacy updates, practice management advice, reports on research and quality, and the latest news from the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS).

Every issue includes important information that can influence clinical practice, improve office efficiency, and enhance patient care. In fact, 8 out of 10 readers say they have applied an idea from AAOS Now in their practices.

Contributions from the AAOS Office of Government Relations provide an inside-the-beltway look at legislation that can affect orthopaedic practices—from regulatory requirements to new legislation to reimbursement and scope of practice issues. State legislation is also covered.

Throughout the year, AAOS Now provides coverage in every orthopaedic specialty—from arthroscopy to joint reconstruction, pediatrics to trauma. Summary articles present information from orthopaedic specialty annual meetings. All articles are regularly enhanced with online references, resources, and links to additional information. AAOS Now also recaps the top stories from AAOS Headline New Now, the Academy’s thrice-weekly digest of news of interest to the orthopaedic community.

Features focus on orthopaedics around the world, orthopaedic risk management strategies, and “face-offs” on controversial topics. Editorials and “sound-offs” bring the voice of the orthopaedist to the forefront, enabling readers to share their viewpoints with the wider orthopaedic community.

AAOS Now is your source for information on actions taken by the AAOS Board of Directors, such as adoption of clinical practice guidelines, appropriate use criteria, and information and position statement. AAOS Now also reports on all actions taken under the AAOS Professional Compliance Program.

The Daily Edition of AAOS Now, published each day of the AAOS Annual Meeting, presents on-site coverage of speakers, symposia, and scientific presentations.
