Joint replacement surgery can be a pain. Talking about it shouldn’t be.

Register to attend a roundtable discussion with other patients, clinicians and researchers to put your best (hip, knee) forward. Help us dispel myths and answer concerns.

Patient-engaged research can help fix problems like the safety of joint replacement and the selection of implantable devices. Over the past two years, we met with patients, advocates, researchers, clinicians, and health systems leaders in Boston, Chicago and New York City to talk about these concerns. We believe that important health care decisions in arthroplasty (joint replacement) can be guided with better evidence. Bringing STakeholders Together for Engagement in Research for the Selection of Arthroplasty Implant Devices (BeTTER SAID) is the name of our webinar and roundtable series. This project is funded through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award (2228-GHLF).
