This insightful NOA webinar on “Learning from Implant Analysis at Revision Surgery” explored the benefits offered by implant analysis, shedding light on the role it plays in advancing orthopaedic care.
The NHS Implant Analysis Service (NHS-IAS) is a new service that conducts physical analysis and provides reports on orthopaedic used medical devices (UMDs) for the benefit of NHS Trusts, surgeons, and patients. In the UK, it’s estimated that less than 1% of all revised primary hips and primary knees undergo routine physical analysis, depriving surgeons, manufacturers, and regulators of valuable insights into device performance.
While hospitals have previously attempted device analysis through various centres, the NHS-IAS offers an independent and consistent approach. They provide unbiased analysis and reporting within days, ensuring a higher level of accuracy and reliability.By enabling a deeper understanding of implant performance and collaborating with organisations such as ODEP, NJR, HES, Beyond Compliance, and GIRFT, the NHS-IAS aims to enhance patient safety and improve outcomes.
We welcomed special guests:
- Jason Wilson, Strategy Lead – Medical Devices & Surgery, NHS Implant Analysis Service
- Professor John Skinner, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon & Director of Research and Innovation Centre, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Trust
The webinar was moderated by NOA Webinar Lead, Mr. Cormac Kelly from the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital.
Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights and contribute to the advancement of implant analysis in healthcare.
