Risto Kontio & Neal Futran  on why AOCMF is more than a professional organization
“The AO is a safety network where you always can count on your colleagues, ask for advice and make great friendships."

Risto Kontio

The AOCMF community embodies a unique culture of teaching and learning, combined with research and development. The universal spirit of this community transcends borders and specialties, benefiting both patients and healthcare providers across the globe. 

In our efforts to fulfill our vision to improve patient care, we concentrate on three special focus areas:

Offer access to a dynamic global network of experts who share a strong interest in CMF trauma and reconstruction.

Support younger surgeons to pursue fulfilling careers and becoming a leader within the AOCMF community.

Improve patient care standards with valuable education and network throughout a surgeon’s career.
