Welcome to the Swedish Knee Arthroplasty Register

– a National Quality Registry since 1975.  

We collect, analyze and report data in order to improve the knowledge on knee arthroplasty, and since 2013 also on knee osteotomy. The goal is to improve the care for patients having such knee surgery. Our webpage (in Swedish) for patients that are to have, or have had a knee replacement, is called Gångbar.

The SKAR turns 40 !!!

The SKAR was started in October 1975 and thereby became the first national arthroplasty registry.

This year we thus celebrate our 40 year anniversary which can be anticipated by the nice cake.
