The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) will hold its fall meeting, Nov. 10-12, in Dallas. Scientific paper presentation includes information about outcomes studies; implant design; cost containment issues; and surgical results and techniques and complications of primary and revision total joint arthroplasty. Symposia and a guest speaker on managed care issues will be included in the program. The meeting also will be used to introduce the Outcome Assessment/Decision Support System (OA/DSS) - an outcome assessment software tool for total joint replacement. The new software system will be available to AAHKS members at the fall meeting; non-members will be able to purchase the software at a future date. For additional meeting information, contact the AAHKS office, (708) 698-1693.
