Dr. Daniel Pincus: Surgery Recommended Within 48hrs of Hip Injury

Dr. Daniel Pincus on why hip surgery should not be delayed.

“Despite extensive research already conducted on the topic, an optimal time for surgical treatment remains a point of contention. In identifying a specific risk threshold, our hope is that this will help inform guidelines worldwide and improve unnecessary delays in treatment for patients with these devastating injuries,” says Dr. Daniel Pincus, study author, orthopaedic resident physician at Sunnybrook, PhD student at the University of Toronto who works with ICES data and researchers.
