Reconstructive Review is the official journal of the Joint Implant Surgery and Research Foundation (JISRF), an orthopaedic research foundation formed in 1971 by Professor Charles Bechtol, MD.
The Reconstructive Review maintains strategic alliances with the Asia Pacific Arthroplasty Society (APAS), California Orthopaedic Association (COA), International Congress for Joint Reconstruction (ICJR) and Joint Implant Surgeons, Inc.
APAS A small group of twenty orthopaedic arthroplasty surgeons from the Asia-Pacific region met on the Gold Coast of Queensland, in Australia, in 1997 to discuss the need for a scientific body to foster and represent the academic and professional needs of the region. The Asia Pacific Arthroplasty Society – APAS - was born out of that meeting.
COA The California Orthopaedic Association (COA) was organized by officers of the six California chapters of the Western Orthopaedic Association (WOA) on October 27, 1975. It's mission is to protect orthopedic surgeon’s right to practice quality musculoskeletal care by monitoring and taking an active role in legislative and regulatory issues impacting orthopaedic practice and their patients.
ICJR is an independent, nonprofit organization formed to change the status quo of orthopaedic education. Our faculty is dedicated to reinventing the ways we gain knowledge that improves patient outcomes.
Joint Implant Surgeons, Inc. is a group of orthopaedic surgeons located in New Albany, Ohio. They specialize in joint replacement and joint preservation of the hip, knee, and shoulder.
