The Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership reports on how hip replacement surgery celebrated its 50th anniversary on 23rd November.

The National Joint Registry has monitored the performance of hip replacement implants since 2003 and they say that the organisation, which is approaching its 10th anniversary, now holds a rich data resource that can offer robust analysis of the performance of implant devices and effectiveness of surgical technique. 

A quote from NJR National Lead Elaine Young reads, "We are reminded today of the significant contribution hip replacement surgery has made to quality of life for so many people. The NJR's role is to ensure that continues to happen. Through the collection of data and the monitoring of implants, surgeons and hospitals, we are able to support the improvement of joint replacement surgery for patients."
