AJRR Annual Reports

Our Annual Report is the formal public report of our Registry data from January 1 through December 31 each year. It includes general information on de-identified orthopaedic device usage patterns, patient demographics, procedure types and counts, surgeon and institution demographics, and device survivorship curves (when statistically significant sample size is available). In conjunction with the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) Annual meeting in November of each year, we will publish our most recent report.

Our first Annual Report was published in November 2014 with data from 2013 (titled 2013); this was the first year that we had a statistically significant sample size available. The 2014 Report includes data from 2014 and was published in November of 2015. The 2016 Annual Report includes data from 2015, however, we changed the title to 2016 since that was the year it was published. Moving forward, this is our protocol - the title year is the year that it's published and the data contained will be from the prior year.

Public Report

More than 7 million people in the U.S. have had a hip or knee replacement. As a Registry specifically designed to track these procedures as an initiative for better quality of care for patients, we are providing patients with information and resources to help them better understand orthopaedics and their health.

Registry Insider Newsletter

The AAOS Registry Program wants to keep its participants up-to-date on Registry news, events, and offerings. Therefore, we've repurposed The Register, our former monthly e-newsletter, to better meet their needs.

Registry Insider is focused on global and proprietary Registry news, tools, and best practices for facilities participating in the Registry Program. Participating hospitals, physicians, clinical, and administrative teams will read Registry Insider:

  • To stay aware of the latest Registry Program technology updates and features
  • To be among the first to know about upcoming complimentary webinars
  • To share Unet and Registry best practice experiences
  • To maximize their Registry Program participation

You can read past articles here, and filter by month on the top left sidebar of this page.
