Partnering with a company supported by private equity is a major decision that may require a leap of faith. Not all private equity is the same. At American Orthopedic Partners (AOP), we understand the fears that often accompany this decision, and have built a physician-led partnership model dedicated to helping other orthopedic surgeons create transformational change within their practices.
AOP can help you become the practice you aspire to be – without losing sleep worrying about navigating the myriad challenges that confront community orthopedic practices today. We will help you develop the right growth strategy and provide the tools your practice needs to achieve the best possible future.
"The two most important things in an organization such as AOP in its relationships with the doctors are 1) having the support and benefits where needed of a larger organization, and 2) being able to continue practicing medicine in the same manner as we had in the past prior to joining AOP. "
“For me to be involved in a national initiative I need to be sure that the practice’s values are focused on the patient. I look forward to helping shape this new model that will enable physicians to grow their practices while working collaboratively to practice better. Who better to take on this exciting new initiative than physicians."
“I’ve spent decades training over 600 fellows, orthopedic residents, and primary care sports medicine fellows on orthopedic best practices and new ways to treat sports injuries that improve outcomes. With AOP, I’ve found an organization with national scale where I can continue to share my experience in clinical research, and best practices, and my passion for orthopedics."
“AOP has all the components we need to be successful. I can run my practice while contributing to and being supported by a national presence that is owned and led by physicians. I really like the fact that practices joining AOP participate in shared governance. We work together as a team to benefit all of the partners in the group.”
"The healthcare industry is constantly changing. As we manage and expand our practice, we wanted to find a partner to help us do this while maintaining ownership so that we can influence how we deliver industry-leading care moving forward.”
“AOP offers the right partnership model for Premier Orthopaedic Associates and the physician leadership, with its focus on local autonomy, is a clear differentiator. With AOP’s partnership and support, Premier will continue to work untiringly to serve the communities in which we live, work and play."
Our physician-led leadership team has a proven track record in business development and healthcare innovation, and is passionate about building a strong future for AOP partners.
