Research led by Nicolas S. Piuzzi, MD, staff in Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, examined how physicians may better predict if and when a patient is at increased risk of developing contralateral arthroplasty after a total knee or hip replacement. These new insights may be key to developing earlier interventions for at-risk patients.
A proprietary remote patient monitoring system—with smart knee sleeve—motivates patients while collecting outcomes. Dr. Brendan Patterson explains the recent feasibility study and how it might help establish the value of total knee arthroplasty.
Analysis suggests morbidly obese patients may have more complications, such as readmission, reoperation and superficial infection, following joint replacement procedures.
A validated machine learning tool accurately predicts the orthopaedic episode of care, building payment models that account for patient-specific risk and comorbidities.
