Disclaimer: An AAOS physician volunteer Work Group developed this clinical practice guideline based on a systematic review of the current scientific and clinical information as well as accepted approaches to treatment and/or diagnosis. This clinical practice guideline is not intended to be used as a fixed protocol, as some patients may require more or less treatment or different means of diagnosis. Clinical patients may not necessarily be the same as those found in a clinical trial. Patient care and treatment should always be based on a clinician's independent medical judgment, given the individual patient's clinical circumstances.

The complete AAOS guideline can be found at http://www.aaos.org/research/guidelines/PUDP/PUDP_guideline.pdf

Disclosure: The disclosure information for the Work Group members and the AAOS and ADA staff on this guideline are found in Appendix XIII (page 306) of the guideline document at http://www.aaos.org/research/guidelines/PUDP/PUDP_guideline.pdf
