Through the National Joint Registry Surgeon and Hospital Profile service you can find information about:
- Consultant surgeons who carry out hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder joint replacement surgery in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and Guernsey
- Hospitals where those joint replacement operations are carried out.
For each consultant surgeon listed, you will find information about their practice including how many hip, knee, ankle, elbow or shoulder procedures they have carried out since 2019. In some cases, concerns regarding the accuracy of the data that has been entered into the registry by the hospitals data entry team, can mean that all or part of a surgeon’s data have not been published, while the data is being reviewed and checked. The data is updated annually in January.
For hip and knee consultant surgeons, there is also information about mortality in the first 90 days after surgery. For hip surgeons only, there is information about the use of ODEP-rated implants as a proportion of total practice. Please see the FAQs and helpful definitions and explanations on the surgeon profile pages for more about the information displayed.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has impacted greatly on the number of elective joint replacement procedures taking place across all regions of the UK, due to the diversion of clinical resources and longer operating times, due to the instigation of essential extra COVID safety precautions. This reduction in volume is reflected by the lower number of procedures recorded on the registry for consultant surgeons and hospitals since March 2020. Further information about the impact of the pandemic on joint replacement surgery is available on the NJRs COVID-19 Special Report webpage.
The information on this website has been collected by the National Joint Registry.
The service is delivered in partnership with the British Orthopaedic Association, the British Hip Society, the British Association for Surgery of the Knee, the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society and the British Elbow and Shoulder Society.
