For many patients with MBO, it is not known whether surgery or non-surgical treatment will give you a better quality of life. Both approaches are commonly used and considered standard of care. The purpose of this study is to use two groups of study participants to compare the quality of life of patients with MBO who are treated with surgery to that of similar patients who are treated with the best medical management (non-surgical treatment). There will be about 180 people taking part in this study.
