Participants will meet with a member of the research staff upon enrollment and answer a series of questionnaires related to health, quality of life, and brain function. Following surgery, the research team will review the patient’s medical record. At 3 months after surgery, participants will be asked to complete two surveys by mail. The surveys will be repeated by mail at the 1-year interval. The research team will also screen participants for signs of depression in a follow-up phone call.
