New online tool predicts individual risks and benefits of joint replacements
An innovative online tool devised by researchers from the University of Sheffield will give patients unique personalised information about the risks and benefits of having a joint replacement for the first time.
A total of over 220,000 hip and knee replacement procedures are performed in the UK each year. At the moment, patients are given very general information about the procedure either from their GP, consultant or by searching on the internet.
