The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) released a new report based on clinical data from hip and knee arthroplasty patient outcomes as part of the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), the largest orthopaedic registry in the world based on annual procedures submitted. Based on the sixth AJRR Annual Report on hip and knee arthroplasty data, the new resource highlights the information that is most relevant for patients and the public. It aims to help those outside the orthopaedic profession learn more about hip and knee replacement procedures and better understand how registry data can help to inform decisions and improve patient care.
