Imagine you are 75 or 80 and facing a major surgery. Are you confident in your ability to stay strong and recover quickly from the procedure? Or, are you worried the operation will leave you weak and unable to get around in your day-to-day life? Research led by Dr. Daniel McIsaac set out to help older adults living with frailty get stronger before surgery by offering them a well-rounded pre-op exercise program with weekly phone calls from the research team.
