  Purpose
Post-operative pain will be measured using a pain diary for one week post-surgery. The purpose is to test the assumption that the arthroscopic technique leads to less post-operative pain and results in shorter hospital stays when compared to the open technique. It is believed that the arthroscopic technique will result in minimal pain when compared to the open technique, allowing this procedure to be performed as day surgery.

Condition
Osteoarthritis

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Numeric Rating Pain Scale (NRPS) [ Time Frame: recorded for one week post-operatively ]
    A scale from 0-10 is used for patients to record the amount of pain they are experiencing at a given time. Multiple questions are asked on a daily basis in a pain diary to report pain in the morning, at night, with movement, before and after pain medication.
