AOFAS Joins Choosing Wisely Campaign

Releases list of 5 common, but often unnecessary, tests, procedures

The American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS) has followed the lead of the AAOS and the North American Spine Society to become the third orthopaedic society to join the Choosing Wisely Campaign, an initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation designed to advance medical professionalism in clinical practice.

“Our participation in Choosing Wisely is aimed at defining appropriate care for patients with conditions of the foot or ankle,” said Sandra E. Klein, MD, chair of the AOFAS Evidence-Based Medicine Committee. “The AOFAS recommendations provide valuable information to help patients talk with their orthopaedic surgeons and make the best choices about their treatment.”
