Donate to Joint Action

You may have had joint replacement surgery in the past; suffer from a musculoskeletal disorder; or been involved in a major limb trauma. We know that the pain can be incredibly debilitating.

In 2015, osteoarthritis was recorded as the main indication for surgery in 90% of hip replacement patients and 98% in knee replacement patients. These numbers are astonishing! One way we can decrease these statistics is with your help.

The aim of the BOA Orthopaedic Surgery Research Centre (BOSRC) is to ensure that orthopaedic treatments are based on the best quality evidence. BOSRC helps surgeons to obtain funding for significant research projects from large funders such as the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) provide the best quality evidence about which treatments work best. It can cost over a million pounds to fund a RCT. But, this investment in research can have substantial returns – the findings can make a difference to patients’ lives and sometimes can lead to savings for the NHS, for example, if treatments that do not work are no longer used.

Please consider giving today to help us make a difference to the future of Trauma and Orthopaedic research.
