AO starts sports medicine initiative with free webinars on shoulder arthroscopy

Sports medicine—the AO's new initiative

The surgical treatment of sports injuries and other soft-tissue conditions around the joints is closely related to classical orthopedic and trauma surgery, yet it requires profound specialization for a surgeon to achieve excellence in patient care.

The AO is responding to the significant global need for unbiased education in this field. Renowned shoulder experts get started with a series of free online events on topics related to the surgical management of shoulder injuries.
