|Principal investigator||Stirling Bryan, PhD|
|Description||Purpose: Among patients with a diagnosis of osteoarthritis and who are undergoing total knee arthroplasty: 1. To identify variations in the patient experience with primary knee replacement surgery by measuring clinical outcomes, health status, and patient satisfaction; and 2. To explore the factors contributing to good/poor clinical and patient outcomes, such as surgical factors, health system factors, socioeconomic demographic factors and psychological factors.|
