Arthritis: Should I Have Hip Replacement Surgery?

I found this excellent interactive tool which is designed to help patients decide how best to manange arthritis of the hip. These days, there is a growing expectation that patients should be much more involved in managing their health problems, and that they must share in the decisions about which treatment is best for them. Doctors need to be much more explicit in telling patients what options are available, and what the risks and benefits are of say, doing nothing, taking medication or having surgery. I’m thinking about asking patients who have been referred to me to read and complete the interactive tool befroe they see me. Do you think that this might be helpful? Please let me know.

If you would like more information, please get in touch.
