NJR In-depth studies

As part of its annual reporting process, specialist topic areas for research are discussed. These proposals are then managed through the NJR Research Sub-committee as internally-supported project proposals.

These studies often reflect significant areas of interest for the whole orthopaedic community and current and ongoing areas of in-depth study work include:
  • Infection after hip and knee replacement
  • Use of 'mix and match' components
  • Ethnicity
  • Outcomes of total hip replacement for patients with Cerebal Palsy
  • Revision surgery for periprosthetic fractures
