Orthopaedic Video Theater Award Winners Will Be Honored on Thursday

The Orthopaedic Video Theater (OVT) is a highlight of each AAOS Annual Meeting, along with the annual OVT Awards. Video monitors in the OVT space, located in OrthoLive in West Hall, showcase award-winning videos in the longstanding OVT Plus surgical technique video collection, as well as those receiving an honorable mention. This highly esteemed recognition is given to a few surgeons who are identified by their peers as having programs that are exceptional in quality and content. In addition to being displayed throughout the meeting, the 2024 OVT Award winners will be celebrated at 4 p.m. on Thursday at the Poster Tour Stage.

In addition to those videos receiving awards and honorable mentions, the OVT space in Ortho-Live also displays videos from the rest of the OVT collection, including 164 new videos uploaded this year. There are two ways for authors to submit videos: the OVT Plus and OVT Now collections.

The OVT Plus collection has an extensive peer-review process and comes with additional benefits. Lead authors enjoy free registration to the AAOS Annual Meeting. Additionally, coauthors will receive a reduced registration rate, and published videos can be included on CVs. Award-winning video abstracts can be submitted for publication in the Journal of the AAOS®. Many OVT Plus videos also have CME designation, making the content enduring material.

Alternatively, the OVT Now collection offers a faster way to get published with an expedited, light review process. Once uploaded, a video is submitted to AAOS committee members in the appropriate orthopaedic specialty and is quickly reviewed and published. This growing collection offers OVT viewers access to the very latest in orthopaedic surgical techniques.

OVT, a free benefit of AAOS membership at all levels, includes more than 1,600 peer-reviewed, high-quality surgical technique videos from renowned experts and innovators around the globe across orthopaedic topics. Most OVT Plus videos include 0.75 CME credits. The OVT platform also includes video content on practice management, quality and improvement, industry, institutions, the Innovation Theater, and more.

Want to submit a video for consideration in OVT Plus? The call for abstracts will open April 1 and run through July 31. Visit to learn more and submit your video.
