Canadian Joint Replacement Registry (CJRR)
In 2001, CIHI in collaboration with the Canadian Orthopaedic Association (COA) launched CJRR, which collects patient, surgical and prosthesis (implant) information on hip and knee replacement surgeries performed in Canada. The CJRR is managed by CIHI and guided by its Advisory Committee, which is made up of orthopedic surgeons, representatives from provincial ministries of health, the COA, the Canadian Orthopaedic Nurses Association, and the Arthritis Society of Canada. The CJRR Advisory Committee is chaired by Dr. Eric Bohm and co-chaired by Dr. Jason Werle. Click on the topics below to learn more.
