Where we come from

In 1958, the AO founders shared one goal. They wanted to change the world of orthopedic surgery in order to transform patient care and outcomes. What they achieved changed peoples’ lives forever.

This was how the AO began. As the AO grew, it became known worldwide as synonymous with excellence in education, innovation, and research. The AO has always been at the forefront in its fields. Now is the time for the AO to embrace a new look and feel for its brand, ensuring that it is responsive to current and future demands.
