Hear from Faculty of the 2024 Course!

“It is great to hear perspectives from surgeon thought leaders from around the country. I always pick up something new from the course.  The smaller and collegial scale of the course fosters personal discussions and relationship-building which is not possible at larger courses.”

- Nicholas J. Giori, MD, PhD, FAAOS


Who Should Attend?

Orthopaedic surgeons who want to expand their approaches and modernize techniques for total hip or total knee replacement.

AAOS will consider the requests of persons with disabilities for reasonable modifications of policies, practices, and procedures or for auxiliary aids and services where necessary to provide them access to AAOS facilities, services and products. AAOS encourages that such requests be made as soon as possible to enhance AAOS’ ability to accommodate the requests. All such requests should be submitted to the AAOS Courses Team at cmecourses@aaos.org
