New England Orthopedic Society


Established in 1958, the New England Orthopaedic Society (NEOS) was created to promote sharing of ideas and camaraderie amongst the Orthopaedic Surgeons of the region while bringing world-renowned Orthopaedic experts to interact directly with the membership at the Fall and Spring annual meetings. NEOS continues to provide those same attributes today.

The meetings are also an opportunity for the region’s Students, Residents and Fellows to submit and present their original research. At both the Spring and Autumn Meetings, the best three papers receive the coveted Kilfoyle Award, named for the Founder of the society.

Thank you, NEOS members! Your membership dues help us continue with our mission. If you are not a member yet, consider applying!
