The Political Action Committee of the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons, or "The Orthopaedic PAC," is the only national political action committee in Washington, DC, dedicated solely to representing orthopaedic surgeons before Congress.
Many aspects of orthopaedic practice are affected by decisions made in Washington, DC. The Orthopaedic PAC's main priority is to give surgeons a voice in these discussions and ensure that PAC contributions are effectively disbursed to advocate for the orthopaedic profession.
Please note that you must be an AAOS member to access Orthopaedic PAC information on our website.
