Neuroimaging Biomarkers for Post-Operative Cognitive Decline in Older Adults


The purpose of this study is to determine if there are certain people who are more at risk for developing thinking problems after non-cardiac surgery. The patients who are participating in this study are those who have had orthopedic surgery. These patients will be compared to a control group of individuals over the age of 60 who have osteoarthritis but do not plan to have surgery within the next year. If you're interested in participating as part of this control group please call (352) 273-5929 or email
