American Joint Replacement Registry

Memorial Medical Center ensures our joint replacement patients have the best experiences possible, and we are always looking for ways to enhance our performance. That’s why we joined the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), an independent, not-for-profit database designed to store comprehensive data about joint replacement procedures.

The AJRR serves as a central clearinghouse for information about joint replacements performed at Memorial and other member hospitals and medical centers throughout the country that participate in the registry. The AJRR collects information about the patient, the surgeon who performed the procedure and the hospital or medical center where the procedure took place. The data collected will help doctors more quickly identify joints that are performing poorly, and will help them match patients, procedures and devices to ensure that every patient has the best experiences possible.

The mission of the registry is to enhance patient safety, improve quality of care and reduce the cost of care. For more information about the registry and its objectives visit
