AOTrauma is an international community of trauma and orthopedic surgeons, musculoskeletal researchers, and operating room personnel (ORP) dedicated to delivering knowledge, experience, and evidence to improve patient care and outcomes in the field of musculoskeletal trauma.

In 2008, the AO Foundation celebrated its 50th anniversary with the creation of AOTrauma. Guided by the AOTrauma International Board, it continues to uphold the long established and successful history of the AO Foundation. AOTrauma provides clear direction and generates and distributes knowledge through research and education programs. The organization educates and facilitates open dialogue to encourage innovation, and influences trauma and orthopedic surgery.

Through its independence, quality content, remarkable faculty, and access to network resources, AOTrauma leads the way as the largest independent trauma community, enriched with knowledge, skills, understanding, and attitudes.

AOTrauma has condensed the overall intention of its endeavors into these three points:

Strive for excellence in trauma care

Empower the next generation

Earn trust through transparency and mutual respect
