We will be performing site maintenance on AAOS.org on October 3rd from 7 PM - 9 PM CST which may cause sitewide downtime. We apologize for the inconvenience.


The AAOS Office of Government Relations promotes and advocates the viewpoint of the orthopaedic community before federal and state legislative, regulatory, and executive agencies. Based in Washington, D.C., with additional staff in the Academy's headquarters in Rosemont, Illinois, the Office of Government Relations identifies, analyzes, and directs all health policy activities and initiatives to position the AAOS as the trusted leaders in advancing musculoskeletal health.
