AJRR Expands TJA Data Collection

Annual  report shows significant increase in procedure count since 2015

Each year, the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR)  releases its Annual Report on Hip and  Knee Arthroplasty Data at the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons  (AAHKS) Annual Meeting. The AJRR published and distributed its 2016 report on  Friday, Nov. 11, at the meeting in Dallas, Tex. The AJRR has seen significant  growth in the past year, leading to this year's report being the most  comprehensive representation of data from an American orthopaedic registry to  date. With a 102 percent increase in procedures since the last report, the AJRR  is well on its way to fulfilling its mission of collecting data on 90 percent  of all hip and knee arthroplasty procedures performed in the United States.
