June 1998 AAOS Report

Online directory available to public

The Academy recently added a public membership directory to its home page where visitors to the web site can locate orthopaedic surgeons in their area by entering a city, state or zip code. It was not designed to be a referral service for the public. Some of the addresses and phone numbers included in the public directory are for members' private residences-not their primary professional location. Academy members who do not want to be included in the online public directory can contact the member services department, (800) 346-2267 or send an e-mail message to member@aaos.org indicating that your listing should be removed from the public online directory. The member services department cannot accommodate multiple listings on the public directory or post an address that is different from the one used as your primary address for Academy mailings.
