Dr. Dalury is very interested in medical research. He maintains a database that stores information about the implants that he uses. Regular periodic X-ray examination is important to monitor the prosthesis’ fixation, and potential wear of the plastic and metal articulations. These X-rays enable Dr. Dalury to compare to the previous ones and check outcomes of the total joint replacement. Dr. Dalury recommends follow-up examinations at approximately six weeks postoperatively, followed by approximately twelve weeks, one year and then every two to three years. This information is strictly confidential and, as with all medical records, is never shared without your permission. You may be approached, on occasion by Dr. Dalury and his staff, to participate in specific research studies. These studies are strictly voluntary. They follow specific and strict guidelines and protocols, and will require your informed consent if you decide to participate.
