Innovation in Hip & Knee Arthroplasty

Hip and knee arthroplasty are highly successful procedures for relieving pain and restoring function. As arthroplasty is applied to younger and higher demand patients, there is a need to innovate. However, small changes in arthroplasty technology can have significant unforeseen deleterious effects. Further, large standard effect sizes blunt subjective outcomes while objective outcomes such as radiographic changes and revision occur late. As such, it is difficult to assess new arthroplasty technology. A new paradigm for innovation in arthroplasty is required.

Join us June 6, 2018, to learn more about hip and knee arthroplasty from Dr. Michael Dunbar, Professor of Surgery & Biomedical Engineering and QEII Foundation Chair in Arthroplasty Outcomes.
