Board takes professional compliance actions

By Mary Ann Porucznik

Meeting in closed session on Sept. 29, 2007, the Board of Directors of the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) considered two separate grievances against fellows for violations of the Standards of Professionalism (SOPs) on Orthopaedic Expert Witness Testimony. The grievances were considered separately, and none of the parties to either grievance was present at the Board meeting.

Steven L. Nehmer, MD, of Union, N.J., and Marvin Winell, MD, of South Plainfield, N.J., were both found to be in violation of two or more of the Mandatory Standards outlined in the SOPs on Expert Witness Testimony. In both cases, the Committee on Professionalism (COP) held hearings and the Judiciary Committee heard appeals to the recommendations of the COP.
