Death rates halve as joint replacement numbers increase

The National Joint Registry’s 11th Annual Report, showing surgical data to 31 December 2013, includes analysis of more than 1.6 million joint replacement records and high-profile research demonstrating that mortality following both hip and knee replacement surgery has halved since 2003.

It also shows that while more joint replacements than ever are taking place, not only have the numbers of people dying following surgery halved but that for most patients, the risk of having the implant replaced within ten years was less than 5%.

A 205,686 total of hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder joint replacements were registered in 2013, the highest in the NJR’s history to date.
