Last year, Dr. Krueger sat down with James I. Huddleston, III, MD to discuss the release of the 10th annual report of the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR). In this recording, they talked about the conception of the registry in 2012, and how it began with surgeons wanting to get an idea of what was being placed in patients in the United States.
In the most recent registry release, there’s reporting of over 3 million primary and revision hip and knee replacements performed in the United States at 4500 hospitals and ambulatory health centers. A great deal of data was collected, so what was intended, was achieved. Dr. Huddleston also discussed how AJRR works, the updates made to the registry and how they are consistently making improvements so more surgeons can contribute.
