Newer techniques including ultrasonication and molecular diagnostic studies are playing an expanded(More)

To our knowledge, studies have not examined whether postoperative changes in comorbidity impact pain and function outcomes longitudinally. Our objective was to examine if increasing comorbidity postoperatively is associated with worsening(More)
