Registries and regulation in total joint replacement

Wednesday, 2017/05/17, 16:00 h

For centuries, medicine and surgery have demanded innovation and we are all very fortunate to live at a time when there are effective medicines and surgical “cures” for what were previously life ending diseases and disabilities. Unfortunately, sometimes, these innovations have come at a cost. Medicines have not always been safe and surgical techniques, particularly with implants, have produced unexpected consequences. The history of Joint Replacement illustrates this experience very well.
