National Musculoskeletal Efforts

Your Academy is proud to advocate for and promote multidisciplinary, coordinated, and patient-centered care to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. 

The United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI), in partnership with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), recently released the executive summary of the Burden of Musculoskeletal Diseases in the United States: Prevalence, Societal, and Economic Costs (BMUS).

Your Academy is a founding member of USBJI, as well as a BMUS Steering Committee member, and directly contributed to the funding and content of the BMUS.
