Abstract

Total knee replacement (TKR) is one of the most successful surgeries for treating knee arthritis. With an ageing population demand for TKR will increase dramatically, placing burden on our health system. It is estimated that 25% of TKRs are performed in inappropriate candidates according to evidence-based guidelines. This project evaluates a program for surgeons that will improve adherence to using guidelines, which will improve efficiencies & equitability of this important surgical procedure.
