VI. OLD BUSINESS
FDA Issues – discussion led by Dr. Bouloux including brief summary about who we are sending and why to the FDA Roundtables and the need to be in front of FDA issues.
Registry – Board is working with AAOMS on a registry but they don’t see it as serious at this point as we do. The Board also is pursuing work with the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), one of several knee and hip registries which is closely affiliated with the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. The board felt that pursuing the option of affiliating with AJRR offered many advantages but may come with significant financial cost as well. To further explore the possibility of a relationship, the board asked Dr. DiFabio to serve as representative and engage in initial contact to explore the terms and requirements of such a relationship. We may consider a special assessment to fund this.
VII. NEW BUSINESS
