Your Orthopaedic Connection a hit
Your Orthopaedic Connection, the patient-public web site launched by the AAOS at the Annual Meeting in March, received more than 515,000 page views in the first eight months of operation.
The web site at http://orthoinfo.aaos.org contains more than 215 peer-reviewed brochures, booklets and fact sheets on orthopaedic conditions and treatments. The AAOS communications department, working with the Patient Education Committee, is continually adding to the web site.
Orthopaedic surgeons who use the free web site templates available from the Academy to set up their own physician web sites can link to these documents. The templates are in the Member Services section of the AAOA home page at www.aaos.org.
