Black patients were less likely than White patients to be satisfied with their post-knee or -hip surgery care, according to a study presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons 2022 annual meeting. Susan M. Goodman, MD, and colleagues reviewed survey responses from more than 2,500 patients who underwent hip replacement and more than 2,100 people who had knee replacement between July 2010 and February 2012. “Our aim was to determine whether overall patient assessment scores differed by race or socioeconomic status,” Dr. Goodman said. In both groups, Black patients were more likely than Whites to say they were “not completely satisfied” with their care after surgery, but there was no difference between Black and White patients in satisfaction with the outcome of their surgery. Patients’ primary health insurance coverage was not associated with satisfaction in any patient group, according to the study team.
