Our Subspecialty Partners

Many orthopaedists specialize in certain areas, such as the foot and ankle, spine, shoulder, hand, hip or knee. They may also choose to focus on specific fields like pediatrics, trauma or sports medicine.

 The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and orthopaedic specialty societies address important issues of interest to orthopaedic surgeons, such as continuing medical education, research, and advocacy.

 OrthoInfo contributors and peer reviewers are not only members of the Academy, but also are active members of associations representing their subspecialty areas.
