Orthopaedic Device Forum

The mission of the Orthopaedic Device Forum is to foster an environment of open communication among the scientific community, government, and related industry on orthopaedic issues of mutual interest.

The Orthopaedic Device Forum was established to permit regularly scheduled interactions among representatives of the scientific and clinical orthopaedic community, the FDA and other governmental agencies, and representatives of the industry related to musculoskeletal health and diseases. Such interactions are consistent with the intent of the federal law. The Orthopaedic Device Forum has been active in addressing a number of regulatory matters of significance to orthopaedics since its inception in 1996.
