Donate Your Body to Science


Almost anyone can donate their own body to science, thanks to the Anatomical Service.

More and more families and individuals are choosing willed body programs, which help save lives by supporting the health sciences. AANA’s Willed Body Program is open to almost anyone, regardless of age, cause of death, prior autopsy, or previous transplant or donation.

Anatomical Service Inc. serves as a legal representative for the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) and the Orthopaedic Learning Center (OLC), both located in Rosemont, Illinois. Our sole function is the administration of AANA’s Willed Body Program. Additionally we procure and prepare the anatomical specimens for medical courses, either accredited continuing medical education forums, or courses for the development of surgical instrumentation and surgical techniques.

No registration is required, but you can plan in advance to ensure your wishes are carried out at the time of death.

Request Info Packet or call them at 847-671-1930 to get all the details and see the eligibility requirements.
