StopSurgicalInfections.org exists for the purpose of communicating with healthcare providers, infection control specialists, insurers, risk managers, and other interested parties regarding the risk and consequences of surgical site infections.

The primary focus of StopSurgicalInfections.org are devastating peri-prosthetic joint infections (PJI's). These horrific injuries affect 12,000-20,000 patients per year in the US and often result in permanent disability. 12% rate their post-infection life as "worse than death."
