The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Stryker and the Orthopaedic Surgeon Directory can help patients find orthopedic knee surgeons, according to their respective websites. KneeReplacement.com also features a search tool that allows users to search for knee replacement specialists.
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons is the leading provider of orthopaedic surgeons in the world, states the AAOS. The organization also offers musculoskeletalar education and continuing education for its members. It has close to 5,000 members as of 2015. The AAOS.org Find an Orthopaedist page allows users to search by ZIP code, location, doctor name and specialty.
Stryker also allows users to find orthopaedic knee surgeons through a convenient search tool on its website, AboutStryker.com. Stryker produces medical equipment and specializes in orthopaedics. One of the company's main goals is to develop new technology and materials that make replacement joints, such as those used in knee replacement surgery, feel more natural and last longer.
The Orthopaedic Surgeon Directory claims that it is the best resource for patient education and belongs to International Congress for Joint Reconstruction. In addition to providing a search tool for finding knee surgeons, this website also features videos that demonstrate how the knee joint works with all of the other bones and joints of the body. It also offers videos that demonstrate how the other areas of orthopaedics, such as the spine, shoulder, feet and ankles, get injured and how they get fixed.
