About ASES Foundation – New Draft

The American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) has long had as one of its fundamental tenets the training and education of the next generation of orthopedic surgeons specializing in shoulder and elbow conditions and treatment. Following the founding of our Society in 1982, the ASES quickly recognized the need for an independent entity dedicated to research and education. In 1984, the ASES Foundation, a charitable trust, was established.


The mission of the ASES Foundation is to foster the scientific advances and enhance the study of shoulder and elbow surgery.


The ASES Foundation is the leading foundation promoting research and education in shoulder and elbow by:

  • Addressing critical research needs and furthering the study of shoulder and elbow injuries and repair
  • Supporting the entry of young physicians into the field
  • Promoting and funding strategic educational initiatives in shoulder and elbow with the ultimate goal of delivering enhanced value based care through better patient outcomes and lower costs
  • Educating the clinical and academic community, and the public, about care, surgical treatment options and prevention to the shoulder and elbow.
