Setting Standards, Protecting Patients


The American Association of Surgeon Distributors (AASD) was formed for the purpose of developing and maintaining standards to govern the legal and ethical operation of physician owned distributorships (PODs).

Now AASD is helping patients, hospitals, and others in the health care field easily distinguish our distributorships by branding those that have met our AASD rigorous quality standards with the ePOD mark.
