February 1999 AAOS Report

Volunteerism features in Bulletin

Orthopaedics Overseas celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Barry J. Gainor, MD, chairman emeritus, provides a historical view of this humanitarian effort in the February Bulletin. A companion article explores the barriers that prevent similar health care volunteerism in the U.S. Also in the Bulletin, James D. Heckman, MD, Academy president, says it's time for orthopaedic surgeons to decide their self image-generalist or surgical technologist? Frontlines examines a battle between orthopaedists and a hospital over an ambulatory surgical center. And Leonard Marcus, PhD, tells how to communicate to avoid mediation disputes or legal battles.
