NJR surgeon and steering committee member becomes President of the British Orthopaedic Association
14 September 2012
The National Joint Registry for England and Wales (NJR) is delighted to congratulate surgeon representative and steering committee member Martyn Porter on his election to President of the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) for 2012-13. As a membership organisation, the BOA cares for patients and support surgeons by focusing on excellence in professional practice, training and education and research.
NJR National Development Lead Elaine Young commented: "The NJR has always worked closely with the BOA and the wider surgical community. We are pleased to have such strong links with the profession, who support and assist the registry in developing data quality - many surgeons input their operation data directly into the NJR.
This role reflects Martyn's considerable experience and commitment as a surgeon to improving patient care. Through his work as one of several NJR steering committee surgeons and Chairman of the Editorial Board, we can only continue to succeed in developing our remit as world's largest joint replacement register."
Mr Porter, along with other members of the steering committee, launched the NJR's 9th Annual Report at the BOA Annual Congress this week (Manchester, Thursday 13 September) at a morning session attended by more than 250 orthopaedic surgeons. The annual reports from the registry analyse data for the preceding calendar year (2011) and share important data and clinical evidence with the profession, helping surgeons to choose the best implants (artificial joint replacements) for their patients.
