The NOF is the federation of the Nordic orthopaedic societies.

The NOF represents more than 5.500 orthopaedic surgeons.

Our mission is to be a forum for the 8 national societies for exchange of common Nordic issues, like evidence based medicine, education and research. We want to influence by developing NOF policy statements on relevant societal topics, publish the Acta Orthopaedica, organize NOF Congresses, facilitate NOF educational initiatives and develop new registries, e.g. complication registry.
