Orthopedic Surgery Outcomes
Our patients consistently have significant improvement in ability to return to the activities they love following their joint replacement.
According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Medical Applications of Research, the highest complication rate among surgeons are those who perform 12 or fewer total knee replacements per year.(NIH Consensus Development Conference on Total Knee Replacement, December 8-10, 2003, Final Statement)
All of the Orthopaedic surgeons who perform joint replacement surgery at Memorial greatly exceed this minimum number of cases in the most recent 12 months. You can rest easy knowing our surgeons will give you the expert care you deserve.
According to Accelero Health Partners database (Jan - June 2010 comparison) for Joint Replacement patients,our clinical outcomes are amongst the best in the nation. Our low complication rates put us above the 90th percentile compared to other Joint Replacement Centers.
