The “One AO Awards” are presented by AOVET North America, an ACVS Educational Partner, annually at the ACVS Surgery Summit. The abstracts are chosen based on their cross-disciplinary orthopedic relevance and embodiment of the “One Medicine” spirit of AO North America. AO North America is a unique organization that brings together physicians and veterinary experts in the fields of trauma, craniomaxilliofacial, spinal, and veterinary orthopedic surgery.
