New ASES Membership Database

Make sure to set up your account!


The American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) is pleased to announce we are moving to Schaumburg, IL, as of April 1, 2021. Schaumburg is located approximately 8 miles northwest of O’Hare Intl. Airport and 30 miles from downtown Chicago.

In preparation for the move, ASES is also transitioning to a new database which is now live. Your former password will no longer work to access this new record, so you will have to create a new one. We also ask that you review and make any updates to your record. If you attended the ASES 2020 Annual Meeting, you may notice this is not reflected. This information will be added in the upcoming months.

To login, you will first need to set up your password by clicking here. Once updated, you can login here, using your email address on file as your Username.

ASES Partnership with the Biologic Association

The Biologic Association (BA) is an orthopaedic organization dedicated to providing one voice for all matters on musculoskeletal biologics and regenerative medicine. The BA is a collaboration of leading orthopaedic organizations: The Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA), the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), the International Cartilage Regeneration and Joint Preservation Society (ICRS), the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM), the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R), Interventional Orthobiologics Foundation, the Orthoregeneration Network (ON Foundation) and now, ASES!

We are excited for this new partnership and welcome you to create a complimentary user account at

The BA was founded in 2018 with a purpose to unite and critically evaluate the current evidence for biologics and regenerative medicine, in order to encourage responsible use of therapies, facilitate rigorous study of treatment outcomes in order to establish the scientific basis for regenerative medicine therapies, and discourage the widespread indiscriminate use of unproven therapies. With numerous voices both nationally and internationally weighing in, the BA’s intention is to provide a unified voice and to offer insight through the development of reporting standards and research that can help physicians and their patients better understand the existing and future clinical application of biologic therapies.

2020 Neer Circle Meeting

On Saturday, October 10, 2020, ASES Past-President William Levine, MD and Co-Chairs Jay Keener, MD and Joseph Abboud, MD, led the Neer Circle Academic Symposium. The topic that was discussed and debated centered upon ASES Surgical Education and Subspecialty Challenges within the Current Health Care Paradigm. A diverse group of thought provoking ASES members participated as faculty and through panel discussions they explored controversial issues such as resident and fellow education, subspecialty promotion among our peers, how the ASES can better serve its membership, and how the ever growing contemporary stresses (e.g. decreased reimbursement, COVID-19, regulatory environment) can best be addressed.

Here is a link to the program schedule that was covered: Program Schedule
A full recording of this virtual symposium is available through the member’s only section of the ASES website: Member’s Only Section
