Annabelle is a University of Melbourne Honours student contributing to research that informs discussions between clinicians and patients about postoperative outcomes, recovery and mitigation of risks following joint replacement. Specifically, she is researching the sex-differences observed in patients following surgery. This includes variation in pain and functional status before and after surgery, and rates of infection, revision, mortality and other adverse complications.
