Cryotherapy use after total knee replacement
We are conducting a short survey of orthopaedic departments to investigate the use of cryotherapy (or ice) following total knee replacement (TKR).

This is to support an application for a randomised trial, depending on the findings of the survey. Survey responses will be completely anonymous, and it is quick to complete (approx. 2 mins).

Thank you for your help and time in completing this survey.

Kind Regards,

Mr Andrew Metcalfe
Orthopaedic Surgeon and Associate Professor
University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire & Warwick Clinical Trials Unit
