The Reporter

NorthBay Healthcare officials recently announced that its Joint Replacement Program is among the first in the country to become a member of the American Joint Replacement Registry. The independent, not-for-profit database is designed to store comprehensive data about joint replacement procedures to help physicians and artificial joint manufacturers improve the experiences of patients who undergo joint replacement surgery. Only about 50 hospitals across the country are part of the registry, which was formed in 2009, officials said.
