Developing better ways to evaluate new surgical techniques and devices
We will be using survey, consensus and qualitative research methods to explore how to best provide information and informed consent to patients.
Our plans based on our new work in this field and our surgical and methodological expertise and leadership.
We will conduct a network meta-analysis (NWA), which enables the simultaneous comparison of multiple interventions in a single analysis.
We aim to investigate whether it is possible to develop a core outcome set to use in early phase studies of trials of invasive procedures and/or devices.
Our research is developing ways to support people through their joint replacement operations, so they can have the best change of a good outcome afterwards.
Improving outcomes after surgery using novel outlier prediction methods within the National Joint Registry.
Research case studies
Making impossible trials of innovative surgical procedures possible.
Accurately and reliably measuring what matters to patients.
Developing methods to improve early phase studies of new surgical techniques, to inform the design and running of main trials.
Over 100,000 hip replacements are performed annually in the NHS. Implants can fail, particularly in younger patients, and 8,000 need to be revised annually.
Identifying factors during treatment that could be changed which were associated with deaths among patients undergoing hip and knee replacement.
Informing the design of a randomized trials comparing one-stage with two-stage revision surgery for hip PJI.
