13th Annual Meeting of the Association of Clinical Elbow & Shoulder Surgeons
The Phoenician - Scottsdale, Arizona
November 9 - 11, 2017
The Association of Clinical Elbow and Shoulder Surgeons (ACESS) was founded in 2005 by a group of fellowship trained elbow and shoulder surgeons with the common goal of the advancement of patient care. ACESS is a group of physicians that share a common interest in shoulder and elbow surgery and this group evolved to provide a peer group to share clinical cases and further the education of complex shoulder and elbow surgery. The main focus of this group is to provide a collegial atmosphere for members and their families and to encourage long term interactions and sharing of ideas. ACESS holds annual business and scientific meetings to improve the quality of care provided to patients with complex elbow and shoulder disorders.
