"Bones. We Like Bones."

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (or AAOS) is a professional organization founded in 1933 for the medical education of orthopods. Continuing medical education activities focus on fixing, counting, throwing, juggling, or burying bones.[1][2][3][4][5] Ripping phone books in half is also a favorite pastime.[6]

Mission Statement

To consult the Society of Hospital Medicine for medical management, to use Ancef liberally[7], to explain diastolic heart failure really good.[8], and to write notes without words.[9][10]

A Note to Non-Orthopods

Please be kind and help your fellow orthopod next time you spot them stuck in a hot van or in a snowbank.[11][12] Do not confuse them with arthropods.[13] If you see an orthopod that is SOB, that is by definition orthopnea. And don't forget to say thank you by buying them some pina coladas.[14]
