National Joint Registry 10th Annual Report 2013

Reports | Published: 25 Sep 2013

The National Joint Registry’s 10th Annual Report shows that more than 180,000 patients in England and Wales underwent joint replacement surgery in 2012, seeing hip and knee replacements rise 7% as a result of the baby-boom population bulge.

Since the NJR’s formation, more than 1.4 million joint replacement operations have been recorded on the database, and for the first time, the report includes analysis of NHS England Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) for hip and knee replacement.

PROMs are pre- and post-operative questionnaires (at six months) that ask patients about their experience and perspective of the quality of care and treatment received. More than 190,000 questionnaires were analysed between April 2009 and December 2012 and the patient evidence provided suggests significant surgical benefits associated with hip and knee replacement.
