Specialty Day 2023

  • Venetian Convention & Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Includes CME Credits

Two powerhouses in sports medicine join forces to bring you an education program with global impact.

Join AOSSM and the International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Medicine (ISAKOS) for Specialty Day 2023, March 11 at The Venetian Convention & Expo Center in Las Vegas--in part with the AAOS Annual Meeting.

Designed to bring you the latest research on the issues and challenges you face in practice today, the joint program development also incorporates international experts in every session. Case presentations and panel discussions will bring you practice insights from around the world. This year, we are featuring a Technique Theater that incorporates a series of videos of procedures done in the U.S. and abroad to demonstrate the benefits of various techniques.

Highlights also include Kennedy Lecturer Darren L. Johnson, MD, widely considered one of the foremost knee surgeons in the US, and an international tribute to the inimitable Freddie Fu, MD, past president of both AOSSM and ISAKOS as well as an innovator, mentor and good Samaritan.

Learning Objectives

Implement an effective evaluation algorithm for musculoskeletal and medical sports medicine conditions based on recent research.

Assess and apply surgical and non-surgical treatment recommendations and rehabilitation protocols for the diagnosis and clinical management of joint disorders in athletes.

Review and implement new minimally invasive techniques for the management of shoulder, knee and hip pathology.
