About ICJR

In late 2007, the founders of the International Congress for Joint Reconstruction (ICJR), each a recognized authority in orthopaedic surgery, joined together to begin developing the next generation of education and community for physicians involved with joint reconstruction.

Today, ICJR provides quality education for the orthopaedic surgery community through live CME meetings and a website featuring surgical videos, articles, and news on joint replacement of the hip, knee, and shoulder. Topics we cover include:

Surgical techniques for joint arthroplasty
Implant choices
Management of complications such as infection, fracture, and dislocation
New technologies such as computer navigation and robotic surgery
Practice management, value-based care, and economics
Issues in outpatient joint replacement surgery


ICJR’s mission is to provide a pre-eminent educational experience and content to the global orthopaedic community through a transparent and inclusive organization with consistent philanthropic contributions for research and education.

Commitment to Philanthropy

The predominant focus of ICJR philanthropy has been and will continue to be resident and fellow education. Profits from ICJR activities are reinvested into the development of bioskills-based resident and fellow education programs and in-kind support to residents and fellows for complimentary attendance at our CME courses throughout the US.

In addition, ICJR has made contributions to professional societies, charities, and organizations relevant to the critical issues in orthopaedics today. The goals and finances of the ICJR are fully transparent.

ICJR is:

Global: Our members, educational programming, and collaborations span the globe, with strong footholds in Australia, China, Europe, Japan, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, South America, and the United States.
