Gain easy access to the award-winning AO Surgery Reference. AO Surgery Reference is an online repository for surgical knowledge. It describes the complete surgical management process from diagnosis to aftercare for all fractures of a given anatomical region, and also assembles relevant material that the AO has published before. It gives access to:

* Hundreds of surgical procedures and approaches
* Surgical decision making made easy with literature evaluated and prepared for quick reference
* Hundreds of pages of previously published AO material

The idea behind this service is the realization that reference in daily clinical life is often difficult. Frequently, there is little time during a hospital day to consult books or journals, or even to perform a literature search in order to gather evidence for a decision. The AO Surgery Reference allows surgeons to access much of the body of surgical knowledge for reference purposes during their clinical work.

Ratings and Reviews

The best kind of effort put in to orthopaedics world!


I'm seriously impressed by the way this app works, it's a huge benefit for any orthopaedic surgeon who is about to deal with a variety of cases after stepping in to operation theatre each morning, surgeons might already know most of the stuff present here but still they can over look in many situations.
This app helps in restoring what is to be there in your might at this particular moment, and all this is done by AO' in other words what they decide dictums in orthopaedic world.

Great app!


Amazing detail! I am a medical student and this is a perfect app for quickly previewing and reviewing procedures. I am very impressed by the concise but extensive nature of the info available through this app. I wish there were more apps out there like this one. Not quite all parts of the anatomy are covered yet, but most are and I am sure the rest will make their way into the app soon, so this qualification should in no way deter anyone interested from downloading the app.

This is a extravagant app!


This is a free app that not only encompasses such great information but works so smoothly. Bravo indeed, especially the clinicals in surgical approach. Please developers keep updates coming!
