We started our year with our first journal club meeting on the 3rd of February. We discussed our staffing plans for the year and are excited to welcome a new foot and ankle & lower limb surgeon Mr Michael Galvin. He will commence his Geelong University Hospital apopintment in late February 2020. We also reviewed our arthroplasty performance at Geelong University Hospital. The national joint replacement registry data was extracted and reviewed. We are performing very well. Our revision rates for our total shoulder replacements, hip and knee replacements are better than the state and national average. We will continue to monitor and improve our performance.
