We also undertake statistical analysis of the National Joint Registry, the largest arthroplasty register in the world. This includes survivorship analysis for the NJR Annual Report (PDF, 3.8MB) and the development of the outlier methodology to monitor the performance of orthopaedic implants, units and surgeons. This work is contracted by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) and is led by Professor Ashley Blom.
We are home to the RESTORE research programme (Research Studies into the Orthopaedic Experience), funded by the UK's National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). This programme is made up of several research projects focusing on improving patient experiences of joint replacement surgery.
We are home to 'STAR' (Study of Treatment After Replacement). This study is funded by the UK's National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and is made up of several research projects. Together, these seek to improve the ways in which long-term pain after knee replacement is identified and managed.
