American Academy of Orthopaedic
Surgeons’ Annual Meeting
Chicago, March 19-23, 2013

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ (AAOS) Annual Meeting is now underway – providing an excellent opportunity for members to connect, discuss multiple perspectives and share new research.

For the past 14 years, the Annual Meeting has kicked off with a volunteer initiative – building a safe and accessible playground in the host city as a way to say thank you and give back. This year, the playground was completed in just six hours with the help of more than 400 volunteers who braved Chicago’s weather and left their marks on a lasting gift to the Faith Community of Saint Sabina.

This report serves as a daily update of the news coverage coming out of Annual Meeting. Should you have questions about this report, please stop by the Press Room in McCormick Place in room N137 or contact us at the numbers listed below. Thank you and enjoy the meeting!
