STOP Campaign

The American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons is excited to announce a new partnership with the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and the STOP (Sports Trauma and Overuse Prevention) Sports Injuries program, which aims to help prevent traumatic and overuse injuries in young athletes.
The program utilizes a broad set of sport and injury-specific resources that provide athletes, parents, coaches and healthcare professionals information on common sports injuries, how they can be treated, and most importantly what steps can be taken to prevent them. Beyond raising awareness on the important topic of injury prevention, the program also highlights how playing safe and smart can enhance and extend a child’s athletic career, improve teamwork, reduce obesity rates and create a lifelong love of exercise and healthy activity.
We encourage ASES members to consider supporting the program by signing-up their own practices and institutions as official collaboration organizations and sharing the educational materials with patients. To learn more about how you can get involved and help keep kids in the game for life, visit

Técnicas Avanzadas de Cirugia de Hombro, (Advanced Techniques in Shoulder Surgery), is an innovative and unique 2-day course dedicated to shoulder arthroplasty and arthroscopy that is joint sponsored by AANA and ASES. It will include such advanced techniques as Arthrosocpic Latarjet and dealing with complications as well as glenoid bone deficiencies with Reverse TSA. The course will be held at the OLC in Rosemont, IL, and will be presented entirely in Spanish to a Spanish-speaking audience to achieve a deeper and more comprehensive learning experience. Faculty include internationally recognized authorities in shoulder surgery from the US, Latin America, and Spain who will share their experience through didactic lectures, panel discussions, and extensive cadaveric lab sessions that cover all of the latest techniques in shoulder surgery. As thought leaders in the world of shoulder surgery, AANA and ASES hope that the continued dissemination of advanced techniques to an international audience will improve surgeons’ abilities to provide complex patient care in a more global fashion.

SOS and OBERD Systems
Now Available to ASES Members

In Spring 2018 the ASES leadership carefully evaluated several data management web-based systems that would allow ASES members to collect and analyze patient reported outcome data as well as promote the use and improvement of PRO’s in clinical care.  After a thorough evaluation, the ASES leadership chose 2 systems: Surgical Outcomes System™ and OBERD.

Each data management system brings a set of valuable benefits – members are invited to select the system that best addresses their practice needs. SOS if available free of charge while OBERD is being offered at a deeply discounted price. This is an excellent opportunity for our members and we hope that you will take full advantage of this benefit. To learn more about each system review the details below.
