Coming Soon: New ASES Website
ASES is very excited to announce that we will be launching a brand new website next month at the ASES Specialty Day in Las Vegas, NV. Below is a glimpse at what it will look like. Stay tuned for more details!
Técnicas Avanzadas de Cirugia de Hombro, (Advanced Techniques in Shoulder Surgery), is an innovative and unique 2-day course dedicated to shoulder arthroplasty and arthroscopy that is joint sponsored by AANA and ASES. It will include such advanced techniques as Arthrosocpic Latarjet and dealing with complications as well as glenoid bone deficiencies with Reverse TSA. The course will be held at the OLC in Rosemont, IL, and will be presented entirely in Spanish to a Spanish-speaking audience to achieve a deeper and more comprehensive learning experience. Faculty include internationally recognized authorities in shoulder surgery from the US, Latin America, and Spain who will share their experience through didactic lectures, panel discussions, and extensive cadaveric lab sessions that cover all of the latest techniques in shoulder surgery. As thought leaders in the world of shoulder surgery, AANA and ASES hope that the continued dissemination of advanced techniques to an international audience will improve surgeons’ abilities to provide complex patient care in a more global fashion.

SOS and OBERD Systems
Now Available to ASES Members
In Spring 2018 the ASES leadership carefully evaluated several data management web-based systems that would allow ASES members to collect and analyze patient reported outcome data as well as promote the use and improvement of PRO’s in clinical care.  After a thorough evaluation, the ASES leadership chose 2 systems: Surgical Outcomes System™ and OBERD

Each data management system brings a set of valuable benefits – members are invited to select the system that best addresses their practice needs. SOS if available free of charge while OBERD is being offered at a deeply discounted price. This is an excellent opportunity for our members and we hope that you will take full advantage of this benefit. To learn more about each system review the details below.
