TOWARD AN EVIDENCE-BASED APPROACH FOR TREATING END-STAGE KNEE ARTHRITIS
Grant number: 1122526 | Funding period: 2017 - 2021
World-wide more than one million total knee replacements (TKR) will be performed for end-stage knee osteoarthritis in 2016 alone. With an ageing population, demand for this procedure will increase dramatically, placing burden on a constrained health system. Up to 25% of TKR recipients experience on going pain after surgery and are dissatisfied with TKR. My research seeks to improve efficiencies and equitability of this important surgical procedure and in doing so optimise patient outcomes
