The Orthopaedic Knowledge Update® (OKU) series provides comprehensive and up-to-date orthopaedic knowledge every 3 years. The new OKU 14 covers new developments over the past 3 years based on new evidence, outcomes, and innovations in the recent literature since the previous volume was published. Every chapter also has annotations for recent references.

Every detail is supported by clinical research, filtered through the experience of OKU’s renowned orthopaedic specialty contributors and a rigorous editorial process. This intense expert review results in chapters that are coherent, focused, and accurate in content and details. It also eliminates recommendations that are overreaching or based on author opinion or local practice.

“Because medical knowledge and innovation evolve so quickly, our objective was to provide a thorough update of latest advancements based on the available science and literature. We assembled a group of world-renowned experts to create this book,” said Leesa M. Galatz, MD, MBA, FAAOS, editor of OKU 14.

Whether you need to access information for first-time board certification or you are looking to enhance patient care in your daily practice, OKU 14 offers information you will not find in other textbooks. You will have access to vast amounts of new knowledge and clinical thinking across orthopaedics, as well as clinical guidelines and best practices supported by the latest evidence.

OKU 14 is available through AAOS’ publishing partner, Wolters Kluwer. To purchase or to learn more about OKU 14 and the OKU 14 Scored and Recorded Self-Assessment Examination online package, which is worth 70 CME credits, visit
