The Importance of Research for Joint Replacement Patients

Like any other medical specialty, research studies contribute to outcomes and give us fact-based knowledge to make informed decisions about healthcare treatment plans. Fact-based outcome research studies are an important part of improving outcomes for hip and knee replacement recipients.

Documenting and tracking outcomes and participating in national orthopedic studies is an important part of my practice. My goal as a joint replacement surgeon in Oklahoma City, is to give my patients the best results possible and research gives me the information and knowledge to continuously improve my techniques and outcomes. I am an advocate of using the latest technology with clinical research outcomes as an important pillar in my joint replacement program.
