AAHKS has made pertinent information for hip and knee surgeons related to the COVID-19 pandemic available one a single page on the AAHKS website. The information includes:

  • Links to the latest Federal guidance on elective surgery and telemedicine
  • Links to patient education including the newest article, “Joint Care at Home During COVID-19”
  • Briefs from our advocacy partner, Epstein Becker & Green
  • Links to dashboards of other medical associations
  • Videos, podcasts and webinars

CMS is recommending institutions and providers consider postponing elective hip and knee replacements.

In addition, CMS has revised telemedicine requirements for all care – not just related to COVID-19 – and have suspended the relevant audits.

Be sure to visit often and share the information with your colleagues and patients.
