At the 2023 AAHKS Annual Meeting, the chair of the Digital Health & Social Media Committee Shaun P. Patel, MD and Ahmed Siddiqi, MD, MBA sat down with Drake G. LeBrun, MD and Brian P. Chalmers, MD to discuss their paper presented at the meeting on Does Melatonin Improve Subjective Sleep Quality after TKA? A Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Trial. 

This study was ignited from hearing so many patients complain about their quality of sleep following surgery. Drs. LeBrun and Chalmers noticed large improvements over the years in pain control, range of motion, function and things like that, but very little relating to improving sleep for patients. 

Take a listen and find out if melatonin improves the quality of sleep for patients who recently undergone surgery. We think you’ll find this recording and results very fascinating. Enjoy, and thanks for listening to AAHKS Amplified!
