This week, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), The Hip Society and The Knee Society officially endorsed the AAHKS Outpatient Joint Replacement position statement.

“This AAHKS position statement was developed as a true collaboration in partnership with AAOS, The Hip Society and The Knee Society, as well as with input and support from AdvaMed. We are proud of this collaborative effort that has received full support of all involved organizations. Further, our goal for this statement is to support our members who perform these essential surgical procedures and to protect the patients who benefit from them,” said R. Michael Meneghini, MD, the statement’s main author. Review the statement.
