Analysis of the Latest Registry Data Yields New Insight into U.S. Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Practice

"This year marks an exciting year for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and our cornerstone registry for hip and knee arthroplasty, the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR). With over 1 million patients and over 1.4 million hip and knee arthroplasty procedures entered into the Registry, the AJRR is the largest orthopaedic registry in the world by annual procedural count.

We are proud to present this 2018 Annual Report which reflects data collected from 2012 through 2017. The report includes data on 1,186,955 procedures from 1,067 institutions. In addition, this report includes data from the former California Joint Replacement Registry (CJRR), which is now fully integrated into AJRR as the California State Registry."
