Orthopaedic surgery organization looking for life-changing stories
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) wants patients to tell how their quality of life has improved.
It sounds like a simple sentence to complete: “Because of my orthopaedic care, I can ….”
Yet, surely the answers will be varied—and many of the stories will be moving. So, the AAOS wants patients of all ages to go to www.aNationinMotion.org to tell how orthopaedic care has helped them get “moving again, allowing them to
return to work and to the activities they love, pain free.”
“People may not realize that orthopaedic surgeons treat infants, elite athletes, seniors and everyone in between,” says
Karen Hackett, CEO of AAOS in a Sacramento Bee article. “
Our members' orthopaedic specialties vary, from hands to feet, spines, joints, trauma, pediatrics and a variety of other areas of expertise. The
stories we are collecting will illustrate the value of this care to a person, a family, a community and our country.”
Patients can submit their stories, which may include photos and videos, at www.aNationinMotion.org
through Friday, March 23.
