Active involvement in organized medicine helps our specialty influence the significant changes in our health care system. Without a critical mass of hip and knee surgeons belonging to the AMA, we won’t have representation in the American Medical Association House of Delegates (AMA-HOD). This policymaking body of the AMA is our opportunity to collectively voice the perspectives and interests of hip and knee surgeons. To activate your 2016 AMA membership, visit or call (800) 262-3211.
