About AASD

The American Association of Surgeon Distributors is a public-benefit, non-profit association. Our purpose is to provide and fight for an industry-recognized set of strict standards for surgeon-owned distributorships, and grant membership to distributorships that are fully compliant.


The AASD’s mission is to protect patients, promote healthcare savings, and develop, endorse, and enforce standards for the advancement of ethical and legal surgeon-owned distributorships.
