AbstractsPodium Presenter

The AAHKS Annual Meeting Program Committee will review and select abstracts for podium and poster presentations. Authors of the abstracts selected for podium presentations have the opportunity to submit a manuscript for consideration of the James A. Rand Award, the Lawrence D. Dorr Award and the AAHKS Clinical Award. Authors of podium presentations also have the opportunity to submit a manuscript for publication in The Journal of Arthroplasty (JOA) Proceedings of the AAHKS Annual Meeting. All authors of podium and poster abstracts who are selected for the Annual Meeting are required to submit a manuscript for moderator review.


The AAHKS Annual Meeting Program Committee is looking for symposium topics covering all aspects of arthroplasty and health policy. Symposia topics are cutting edge, controversial, or innovative. Symposia sessions at the Annual Meeting are always interactive (as opposed to a didactic).

Surgical Technique Videos

The AAHKS Annual Meeting Program Committee is encouraging the submission of high quality, clinically relevant surgical technique video proposals that will provide high educational value.
