Welcome to the AOANJRR Welcome to the AOANJRR

The Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry (AOANJRR) is an initiative of the Australian Orthopaedic Association (AOA). The AOANJRR was established in 1999 becoming fully national in mid 2002. The purpose of the AOANJRR is to improve and maintain the quality of care for individuals receiving joint replacement surgery. Information on hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, ankle and spinal disc replacement is collected from all hospitals in Australia undertaking joint replacement surgery.

The AOANJRR is entirely funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health.

2014 Annual and Supplementary Reports

The 2014 Annual Report on Hip and Knee Arthroplasty publishes findings on over 891,000 procedures undertaken between 1 September 1999 and 31 December 2013.  The report is presented in the same format as last year and features two new chapters; ‘Patella Resurfacing in Total Knee Replacement' and ‘Dislocation related to Femoral Head Size'.  The chapter on ten year outcomes for hip and knee prostheses combinations is again presented.
The Registry is also publishing 15 supplementary reports which will be available as web reports on the AOANJRR website.  One of particular interest is the report entitled ‘Demographics and Outcomes of Shoulder Arthroplasty'. This report is more detailed than the other supplementary reports and includes increasingly important data on the outcome of shoulder replacement.
Another report that may be of particular interest to joint replacement patients is the Lay Summary.  This report explains the results published in the hip and knee report in a clear, concise and easily understood manner.
All reports are publicly available by selecting the ‘Publications' tab on the Menu ribbon.
