Fork in the road: Contemplating surgery


Total joint replacement surgery has improved the lives of millions around the globe. But that doesn’t mean it’s the right choice for everyone. The benefits and potential harms change over a person’s lifetime. Age, pain level and expectations for an active lifestyle can determine if a total joint replacement is the right choice. Dr. Nick Bansback reveals how new research is helping personalize information so patients and their surgeons can choose the best treatment options for them.
