The Thread that Runs through AOSSM

I love AOSSM because it includes a community of orthopaedic sports medicine surgeons with the common goal of keeping our patients healthy, active, and "in the game". AOSSM provides mentorship. It gives its members a direct connection to the thought leaders and innovators in the field of sports medicine, while promoting the practice of evidenced based medicine and also exploring cutting edge advanced in treatment and technology.”
