Meets AANA Membership Requirements

Our goal and mission is to provide the highest quality instruction in arthroscopic and reconstructive shoulder, knee and hip surgery with the emphasis on being truly relevant to the practicing orthopedic surgeon. We will present cutting-edge information while still keeping the focus on helping to solve practical clinical problems.

We greatly appreciate the positive feedback on the meeting and it’s hoped for continuation. It is obviously very difficult for those of us who have been very close over many years to consider ending. Times are changing. Companies are getting more pressed and funds to help support more limited. There is difficulty with time out of the office for attendees and competition with webinars, internet education, on-line offerings, increased offerings of local or regional meetings and the like that can compete for attendance. On a practical level our coordinator, Sue Duncan, has relocated to Phoenix which makes some of the preparation more challenging. Her institutional knowledge and background and personality make her hard to replace. At the same time our business manager who has helped with contracts, budgeting, bill paying, etc. is retiring and again hard to replace. So we want to go out with docs wanting more and not with the decline that some of these changes might cause. But we do deeply appreciate your interest and support over the years.
