American Orthopaedic Association

The American Orthopaedic Association (AOA), founded in 1887, is the oldest and most distinguished orthopaedic association in the world. The AOA’s mission is to identify, develop, engage and recognize leadership to further the art and science of orthopaedics.  Membership in the AOA is achieved by those who have made a significant contribution to education, research, and the practice of orthopaedic surgery.  Currently, the AOA has over 1,500 members.  Own the Bone®, a program developed by the AOA, is a web-based quality improvement initiative that encourages a multi-disciplinary approach to improve the identification, evaluation, and treatment of patients with osteoporosis after fragility fractures.  The program provides educational materials and provides benchmarking capabilities through its web-based registry.
