The week of March 6-10, Dr. David Scott traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana to present research findings at the annual American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) meeting.
Founded in 1933, “the AAOS is the preeminent provider of musculoskeletal education to orthopaedic surgeons and others in the world.”
The AAOS annual meeting brings together over 20,000 attendees, from orthopaedic surgeons to researchers and health professionals, and features speakers, presentations, awards, educational programs, technical exhibits, and more. It provides the opportunity for the orthopaedic community to network and share knowledge.
“While we have a lot of knowledge in our field,” says Dr. Scott, “there is still much to learn.”
Dr. Scott presented his findings on a research study titled “A Prospective Comparison of Total Knee Arthroplasty Using an Ultra‐Congruent, a Condylar‐Stabilizing Tibial Insert, and a Posterior Stabilized Tibial Insert: Five Year Results,” which compared knee implants over a five year period.

At the AAOS Annual Meeting, presentations are made in two formats: posters and podium presentations. In 2017, Dr. Scott was selected to participate in both a poster presentation and a podium presentation.
His podium presentation, titled “Five-year Prospective Randomized Study of Knee Arthroplasty: Cruciate-Substituting vs. Posterior-Stabilized,” compared the clinical outcomes obtained with two different designs of knee prosthesis. This research has subsequently been accepted for publication in the Journal of Arthroplasty.
His poster presentation was titled “Mid-flexion Stability of Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Stress-x-ray Comparison of Posterior-stabilized vs. Medial-pivot vs. Condylar-stabilizing Designs.”
Dr. Scott continues to conduct research.
“I am continually pursuing projects that I hope will help us improve our care of patients with hip and knee replacement,” says Dr. Scott. “I am currently studying another device that I believe holds greater promise for improving the outcomes and satisfaction of total knee replacement.”
