Access to America's Orthopaedic Services Act of 2009 Introduced in the Senate
Date:8/4/2009

Senators Cardin (D-MD) and Burr (R-NC) sponsor bill to increase awareness and research for musculoskeletal diseases

WASHINGTON, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Thursday, July 30, 2009, the Access to America's Orthopaedic Services Act of 2009 (AAOS Act), S. 1548, was introduced in the United States Senate by Senators Benjamin Cardin (D-MD) and Richard Burr (R-NC).

This introduction, the first of its kind in the Senate, marks a historical victory for the orthopaedic community. S. 1548 compliments legislation already introduced in the House of Representatives by Representatives Gene Green (D-TX) and Michael Burgess, MD (R-TX).

"Congress has a responsibility to act to increase educational and training efforts, identify gaps in access to care, and help standardize accreditation for specialized care and transplants," Senator Cardin said.

The AAOS has long championed this legislation, which will bring greater awareness and promote research and new surgical methods to orthopaedic surgeons.

"This is an important development for the orthopaedic community and our patients," said AAOS Council on Advocacy Chair, Peter J. Mandell, M.D.. "We commend Senators Cardin and Burr for their leadership on improving the ability of patients to access affordable, quality orthopaedic care."

The budget-neutral AAOS Act offers solutions to lowering the cost of treating bone and joint conditions -- with a current annual domestic price tag of $849 billion.

"The effects of musculoskeletal disease can be physically debilitating and very painful for patients. It also costs our nation billions of dollars each year in treatment and care. As a large number of Americans get older, good bone health will need to be a top priority for our country. I'm pleased to work with the AAOS and Senator Cardin on this important leg
