THE LIMB LENGTHENING AND RECONSTRUCTION SOCIETY

*SOCIETY OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEONS AND AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEONS.

SIX YEARS AFTER THE “GOVERNMENTAL” RE-ORGANIZATION OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEONS, THE PARTICIPATION OF THE AAOS FELLOWSHIP IN A POSITIVE PARTICIPATION PROCESS HAS CHANGED THE ENTIRE OUTLOOK OF THE AAOS.

NOW, THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF THE AAOS INTERFACES ACTIVELY WITH THE BOARD OF COUNCILERS (BOC), BOARD OF SPECIALTIES (BOS) AND THE STATE ASSOCIATIONS.

THE LLRS BECAME A BOARD MEMBER OF SPECIALTY SOCIETIES AFTER A FIVE YEAR EFFORT BY THE LLRS BOARD AND ESPECIALLY J PRICE, JBIRCH, W MACKENZIE, J GUGENHEIM, & S GREEN. WE ARE NOW KNOWN AS THE “LIMB LENGTHENING AND RECONSRUCTION SOCIETY”. THROUGH THE EFFORTS OF J BINSKI AND OUR REPRESENTATION THE COMMUNITY KNOWS US NOT AS
“ WHAT DO YOU DO?- R KYLE(AS PRESIDENT)” “DO YOU LENGTHEN SHORT PEOPLE”, BUT FOR THE SCIENCE OF OSTEOGENESIS

WE HAVE TRANSENDED TO RECOGNITION AND AN EQUAL REPRESENTATION AND VOICE IN THE CURRENT ISSUES FACEING THE PRACTICE OF ORTHOPAEDIC SURGERY. WE ARE REPRESENTED BY THE PRESIDENTAL LINE, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND OFFICERS IN THE COMMITTEES OF COMMUNICATIONS, EDUCATION, HEALTH POLICY AND RESEARCH.

OUR OPINIONS ARE HEARD ON THE ISSUES OF COLLABORATION, STANDARDS OF PROFESSIONALISM, RESEARCH, HEALTH CARE, AND EDUCATION.

THIS HAS FACILITATED OUR MONOGRAPH, JOINT SPECIALTY DAYS,
ASSOCIATION WITH A0FAS. OTA, POSNA, RJOS & SOMOS.
