Lynda Williams writing in Medwire reported, “Research may help physicians give patients who are undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) a realistic expectation of surgery outcome based on their overall physical and mental health,” according to a study published in Rheumatology.
Investigators found that “the likelihood of pain 2-5 years after primary or revision TKA was significantly influenced by a wide range of co-morbidities including heart disease and depression.”
it’s clear that a patient’s state of mind has a tremendous influence over the outcome of any disease or surgery.
