Abstract

Periprosthetic joint infection is a rare and devastating complication. Management of this complication often requires a multidisciplinary approach similar to that used for the care of patients with cancer. Several studies have reported better outcomes following total joint arthroplasties performed at specialized hospitals than those performed at general hospitals. Specialized institutions use care pathways that aid the multidisciplinary team in decision making. During the recent Musculoskeletal Infection symposium, specific issues were discussed with regard to the treatment of periprosthetic joint infection, including medical optimization, systematic approaches to infection management, and the importance of establishing registries to aid in the creation of Centers of Excellence. A Center of Excellence in periprosthetic infection could provide better overall outcomes with lower financial, physical, and emotional costs to patients.
