Why AOP?

American Orthopedic Partners

Your partner in battling the headwinds

Running a community orthopedic practice is really tough these days.


Not only do you have to constantly deal with new regulatory complexities, but you also must grow your practice, recruit new staff, keep up with technology, deal with CMS fee reductions, maintain patient service and clinical excellence, and prepare for value-based care. That’s exhausting for any practice on its own.


That’s where we come in. At AOP, our team of experts helps your practice confront these challenges and thrive.  With our help, you reap the benefits of your hard work. Together we create an environment where everyone wins.

Dedicated to the success of our partner practices and physicians

Our physician-led team is dedicated to empowering both our practices and our physicians. Success is defined by both practice growth, as well as by career satisfaction, and leadership development of our orthopedic surgeons and their key staff.


Every practice and physician has unique needs and goals, which is why we strive to provide personalized support that empowers individual success. Through our interactions with physicians and practice leaders, we drive transformative change to yield the best possible results for our people and our patients, thereby guaranteeing an exceptional future for our practices.
