Board expels two, suspends eight in professional compliance actions

For the second time since the Professional Compliance Program was approved by the fellowship in 2005, the Board of Directors of the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) considered two grievances against fellows for violations of the Standards of Professionalism (SOPs) on Orthopaedic Expert Witness Testimony. Both cases had proceeded through the AAOS Professional Compliance Program, and both cases resulted in one-year suspensions of AAOS Fellowship.
