NYS SOciety of ORTHOPAEDIC Surgeons

Our Governmental Affairs Program

We are committed to promoting and representing viewpoints of the orthopaedic community before Federal and State legislative, regulatory and executive agencies through the following mechanisms:

  • Electronic Calls to Action
  • Distribution of Memorandums to Key Decision Makers
  • Helping Members Develop Personal Relationships with Elected Officials
  • Testifying Before the Legislature and Regulatory Agencies
  • Commenting on Proposed Legislation and Regulations

At any one time, we are reviewing thousands of pieces of legislation and prioritizing bills that impact orthopaedic practice and patient care.

Take advantage of our online software enabling you to quickly send a message to your legislator as well as help engage your patients in voicing concerns and recommendations to their own elected representatives.
