AAOS 75th Anniversary Meeting eMotion Exhibit

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) was founded in 1993 and is the top international provider of education to orthopaedic surgeons, offering continued education activities, CME courses, medical publications and electronic media materials.  The AAOS annual meeting will be held in San Francisco, California, March 5-9, 2008.  The American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons, founded by the Academy Board of Directors in 1997, engages in health and advocacy issues, representing patients and the entire medical profession.  To raise awareness and showcase the experiences of orthopaedic professionals and patients, the AAOS presents eMotion, a traveling art exhibit. 


AAOS welcomed art submissions from patients and medical professionals from around the nation. Applicants were asked to provide biographical information, original artwork, and a detailed explanation of the significance of the art piece, as it relates to orthopaedics.  The eMotion exhibit also shows another side of medical professionals, who were asked to tap into their emotions, expressing everything from the joy of improving a patient’s quality of life, to the frustration of and exhaustion of dealing with patient care.   The number of submissions was overwhelming, showcasing the profound impact these conditions have on patients and professionals.


The traveling exhibit will be consolidated into a coffee table book, a film, and will be featured on the AAOS website. For more information on the AAOS, go to
