AAOS American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons

The London Implant Retrieval Centre (LIRC) will be attending the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) in San Diego in March 2017. This is the largest meeting of orthopaedic surgeons in the world, attended by over 40,000 people every year. The LIRC will be presenting three podium talks, two scientific exhibits and a poster at this prestigious event.

This will include an exhibit on the lessons they have learnt from retrieval analysis of more than 4,000 recalled hip implants, as well as presentations on spine implant corrosion, hip taper junction wear and understanding failure in knee implants.

This work has been prepared in collaboration with hip, knee and spine surgeons at the RNOH as well as surgeons and engineers from Canada, Finland, Switzerland, America and across the UK.

For more information, please contact Prof Alister Hart or Dr Harry Hothi.
