AAHKS is the most important and influential resource for hip and knee surgeons and team members as it advocates for the profession and patients in the changing health care environment. The AAHKS Annual Meeting provides an in-depth, peer-reviewed program focusing on current evidence-based approaches to hip and knee arthroplasty care. Members find The Journal of Arthroplasty to be a valuable resource as it brings together the clinical and scientific foundations for joint replacement. With an emphasis on case reports, Arthroplasty Today is an open-access journal indexed in PubMed Central that features articles on all areas of scientific endeavor that relate to joint replacement.
