|Maureen Dubreuil, MD, MScIncidence and Predictive Factors for Joint Replacement Surgery in Spondyloarthritis
This study will look at the rates of hip and knee replacement surgeries among people who have ankylosing spondylitis, a form of arthritis causing inflammation in the spine. By examining the surgery rates over time and their relation to medication history, we hope to understand if newer therapies for ankylosing spondylitis help to control arthritis at sites outside of the spine.
