CAM Committee assists practicing orthopaedist

The Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Committee has compiled resources and information valuable to the practicing orthopaedist, available online along with a convenient chart outlining potential interactions between drugs and herbal supplements, on the CAM web site. The CAM Committee seeks to educate the fellowship by providing unbiased information on alternative medicine, herbal supplements, and complementary therapies. On the web site, interested individuals can view clinical trials on CAM modalities, discover resources providing CME and other educational resources on CAM, and learn about CAM practitioners. Links to the governmental offices that oversee CAM products and practices as well as other helpful web sites are also available. For additional information or to comment on the web site, please contact the CAM committee at
