This is the first post in a series of articles about the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ Full Guideline for the Treatment of Osteoarthritis of the Knee.
The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) was founded in 1933.  The AAOS  is the leading provider of musculoskeletal education to orthopedic surgeons around the world.
In 2008 a volunteer workgroup comprised of multi-disciplinary medical professionals conducted a systematic review of the current clinical and scientific information about the treatments available for osteoarthritis of the knee.  This series of articles will examine each treatment option.
