New Appropriate-Use Criteria for Non-Arthroplastic Treatment of Knee Arthritis

By the Editors

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has issued a document on appropriate-use criteria to accompany its earlier evidence-based guidelines on treating knee osteoarthritis.

The document's purpose "is to help determine the appropriateness of clinical practice guideline recommendations for the heterogeneous patient population routinely seen in practice."

We've included links to both documents, which total some 1500 pages — all available free.
