medicare payments to physicians

Orthopaedic Surgeons Work On Congress

While it was pushing for a "doc fix" to delay cuts in Medicare payments to physicians, the PAC of orthopaedic surgeons contributed over $360,000 to Congressional candidates, leadership PACs, and party committees during the first quarter of the year.  

The PAC of the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons  contributed $361,650 to federal candidates during the first quarter. Orthopaedic surgeons deal with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. The surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors and congenital disorders.
