The article discusses the management of challenges in orthopaedic surgery by the U.S. Department of Justice, the Institute of Medicine, and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The duty and value propositions associated with the orthopaedic surgeon-medical device company relationship is reconciled with the persistent risks that are attendant to that relationship. The integrity of scientific investigation and day-to-day clinical decision making is aimed to be restored.
