The AO is dedicated to innovations and product development for Small Animal and Large Animal Surgery

The AO Technical Commission is responsible for the development and clinical testing of new devices and their educational concepts, in collaboration with its industrial partners. 

Specialty Technical Commissions, various Global Expert Committees, Expert Groups and Task Forces work together with engineers to solve the most pressing clinical problems.

The Veterinary Global Expert Committee (VEGEC) with its Small Animal and Large Animal Expert Groups (SAEG & LAEG) works towards improving patient care across species.

The groups welcome the input from innovative surgeons throughout the product development process.
