SurgeonMasters Founder Jeff Smith, MD, promoting surgeon wellness at the upcoming 2019 AAOS Annual Meeting

Las Vegas, NV, March 7, 2019 - The 2019 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) hosts its Annual Meeting from March 12 - 16, 2019, at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

More than 20,000 orthopaedic surgeons and healthcare professionals will converge on Las Vegas for five days of education and networking. This year more than ever the meeting features wellness and burnout prevention topics aimed at improving the practices and lives of surgeons.

Every year there is more attention being paid to issues affecting sustainability of practice. I’m excited that the organizations we belong to and support us are starting to pay greater attention to these issues. The days are gone where we go to meetings simply to become better technical surgeons - we’re beginning to truly address surgeons as a whole” - SurgeonMasters founder Jeff Smith, MD

If you’re attending the 2019 AAOS Annual Meeting be sure not to miss opportunities for your wellness!
