The Washington State Orthopaedic Association is a membership-driven organization which represents the interests of orthopaedic surgeons and the patients with musculoskeletal problems whom we treat here in Washington. We are your advocates in Olympia both in the legislature and, sometimes more importantly, in the regulatory arena. We also serve as the “Boots on the Ground” representatives of the AAOS leadership so that the Academy is kept abreast of important issues here in Washington state, and that information about important issues that come up in other states or in Washington, DC is passed on to orthopaedic surgeons here at home.
