Download the AJRR Patient-Facing Interim Report

Utilize this high-level summary of hip and knee procedures and the importance of Registries as an educational tool

The Patient-Facing Interim Report was created with the intent of presenting the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) 2018 Annual Report by highlighting the information that could be of the most interest to one of our key stakeholders, the patient. A team composed of Surgeon Leaders, the AAOS Public Advisory Board (non-clinical volunteers), and AAOS Registry department staff has prepared the following document hoping those outside of the profession will understand more about these orthopaedic procedures.

As the first of its kind, the AJRR Patient-Facing Interim Report highlights general Registry data including information about hip and knee replacements performed across the United States. Besides providing a high-level summary of these procedures, a discussion about patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs), surveys used to capture outcomes from a patient's perspective, is included.

As you read this report, we trust you will gain an understanding of general trends in orthopaedic hip and knee procedures, as well as the benefits of Registry participation. This public resource provides an opportunity to learn how data can be used towards improving the quality of care and patient outcomes.
