Your Orthopaedic Connection presents “Patient Stories”

AAOS is dedicated to providing patients with accurate, reliable information, but sometimes the most valuable insights come from personal experiences of orthopaedic patients themselves. “Patient Stories” is a new section on the Academy’s patient education Web site, Your Orthopaedic Connection, featuring vignettes that describe the orthopaedic experiences of individuals willing to share their stories. The patient stories represent people of different ages with a variety of orthopaedic conditions. The first group of stories is from patient advocates who participated with their surgeons in the 2005 Research Lobby Day in Washington, D.C., to lobby for increased federal funding for musculoskeletal research. More patient stories will be added to the Web as they become available. The direct link is: http://orthoinfo.org/stories
