AJRR Announces its 2018 Volunteer Leadership Appointments

Newly renamed Steering Committee of diverse stakeholders to lead the national hip and knee arthroplasty registry

ROSEMONT, Ill. (February 1, 2018) — The American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) announced its 2018 Steering Committee representatives and its Executive Committee. The Executive Committee members include: Kevin J. Bozic, MD, MBA, as chair; Bryan D. Springer, MD, as vice chair; and Scott M. Sporer, MD, as secretary. David E. Mino, MD, MBA, continues as treasurer and Yvonne Bokelman, MBA, FACHE, transitions to her new role as AdvaMed Representative. AJRR became part of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ (AAOS) registries portfolio in October 2017, at which time the AJRR Board of Directors became the AJRR Steering Committee.

“Under Dr. Daniel J. Berry’s leadership and guidance as chair for the last three years, over a thousand institutions have contributed over a million procedures to the registry, which is very impressive,” stated William J. Maloney, MD, the AAOS president. “The AAOS Board of Directors sincerely thanks the outgoing AJRR Board members Drs. Michael R. Dayton, Craig J. Della Valle, and Mr. Blair Fraser who contributed greatly to the vision of creating a registry that will become the cornerstone of developing registries in other orthopaedic specialty and procedural areas.”

The two newest members of the 2018 Steering Committee include Paul Voorhorst as an AdvaMed Representative and James A. Browne, MD, as The Knee Society Representative. The Steering Committee is responsible for governing the AJRR by overseeing operations pertaining to the U.S.-based Registry for hip and knee arthroplasty. As a multi-stakeholder group, the AJRR Steering Committee is reflected in its structure and is comprised of members representing AJRR, AAOS, the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS), The Hip Society, The Knee Society, industry, payers, and the public. The Steering Committee reports to the newly formed AAOS Registry Oversight Committee (ROC), chaired by Dr. Berry and reports to the AAOS’ Board of Directors.
