AAOS, NAON collaborate on 3 videos

The AAOS and the National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses have collaborated to update three patient education videos–Total Hip Replacement, Total Knee Replacement and Arthroscopic Knee Surgery. They were the first patient education videos developed by the AAOS in 1989.

The AAOS Patient Education Committee and NAON worked with the AAOS department of electronic media, evaluation and course operations to produce the new versions of the videotapes.

The videos help patients weigh the risks and benefits of a procedure and let them play an active, responsible role in their successful outcomes.

The videos are priced at $29 each for members. To order, contact AAOS customer service at (800) 626-6726.
