Learning from the past to understand the present and shape the future 

The Northern Retrieval Registry (NRR) is an organisation dedicated to improving patient healthcare through the study of devices which have been removed from the body ("explants"). 

The NRR combines decades of medical, surgical and engineering experience to achieve these aims. 


We are, to our knowledge, the only major UK retrieval centre to remain free of contractual obligations to manufacturers.


Work produced by the NRR has been endorsed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the regulators of the United States healthcare system. The NRR is recognised by the Beyond Compliance team of the British Orthopaedic Association.
