             Description:

 

The activity improves the outcome of all types of joint replacement surgery.  The AOANJRR collects data on all patients undergoing hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, ankle and spinal disc replacement nationally. The data is collected from all hospitals undertaking joint replacement surgery, and analysed to identify the factors that result in improved standards in prostheses and surgical techniques. Annual and supplementary reports detailing the results of findings are published on the AOANJRR website. 

 

The AOANJRR is operated by the Australian Orthopaedic Association, and data management is contracted to the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute.
