Campbell Clinic physicians take an active role in leadership of various orthopaedic professional groups, serve as contributors to professional periodicals and textbooks and often consult with medical industry companies to advance ideas or products that serve the best interest of the health and welfare of their patients. As a patient, you should be aware of any financial relationships your physician has in this regard and feel free to ask questions about these relationships.
Through our professional organization, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, our physicians maintain a list of their industry affiliations. This information is available to the public at www.aaos.org by visiting that site and searching for the AAOS Orthopaedic Disclosure Program. You can search the list by your physician’s first and last name.
We are happy to answer any questions you might have regarding this program.
