It was terrific to have Professor Richard Page from Geelong as our guest speaker at last night’s Queensland Shoulder Society Meeting. Richard gave us the most recent data from the Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry (AOANJRR) for shoulder replacements. The shoulder registry commenced in 2004 and now includes data on 44 800 shoulder replacement procedures. Virtually every shoulder replacement performed in Australia is included in the registry making it the most significant registry worldwide. The shoulder registry is changing the way we view shoulder replacement for our patients and Richard was able to give us valuable insights into the latest available data.
The registry’s annual reports are freely available.
