It is my pleasure to invite you to join the American Academy of Neurological and Orthopaedic Surgeons (AANOS). Those who typically choose to apply for membership in our organization are seeking a forum to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and experience and wish to enhance them through association with like-minded peers. In many ways, there is a common denominator that ties us inextricably together. First and foremost, Academy members have a need that wasn’t being fulfilled by the mainstream medical and surgical establishment. It may be a need of recognition for what we have accomplished and a forum in which to share those accomplishments.

Certification is available from the American Federation of Medical Accreditation to qualified members of the  Academy in the following specialties: To lookup a member of the Academy click HERE
The American Academy of Neurological and Orthopaedic Surgeons (AANOS) is a scientific and educational association of orthopedists and neurosurgeons that was founded in 1976 in order to improve the quality of care provided to patients in these two major sub-specialty fields. This has been accomplished through setting high standards for training, credentialing and continuous surgical education…
Academy membership provides prestige, certification, accredited education and more. Physicians who practice neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery or neurology are invited to join the American Academy of Neurological and Orthopaedic Surgeons. In addition, physicians and allied health professionals who have an interest in these areas of medicine or are involved in related fields may also join the Academy in an appropriate member category.

The American Academy of Neurological and Orthopaedic Surgeons (the Academy) has  designated the 2025 ICSUS Annual Surgical Update in Charleston, South Carolina as the Academy Annual Scientific Meeting. Working closely with members of the Academy’s Scientific Organizing Committee to determine professional practice gaps and educational need, ICSUS planners  are developing two days of programming that will provide approximately 8 hours of category 1 credit specifically related to our major surgical specialties. A total of approximately 20 credits will be available for the entire meeting, including practice management and ethics sessions.
