Share Your Knowledge

The AAOS Central Program Committee is issuing a call for abstracts from AAOS members, residents, and other orthopaedic professionals on a wide variety of orthopaedic-related topics for the AAOS 2017 Annual Meeting in San Diego, March 14–18. Nowhere else will your discoveries reach such a wide-ranging orthopaedic audience.

"The future of orthopaedic science and practice is constantly progressing," said Alexander Vaccaro, MD, PhD, chair, Central Program Committee. "The AAOS 2017 Annual Meeting is the premiere opportunity to share your own research and clinical breakthroughs. This is the most important meeting of minds and orthopaedic knowledge. Be part of it," he urged. "Don't miss the opportunity to submit your discoveries and new concepts."

Your research or clinical findings may take the form of a paper or poster presentation, a scientific exhibit, or a video in the Orthopaedic Video Theater. Abstracts are now being accepted in the following classifications:

  • Adult Reconstruction Hip
  • Adult Reconstruction Knee
  • Foot and Ankle
  • Hand and Wrist
  • Pediatrics
  • Practice Management/Rehabilitation
  • Shoulder and Elbow
