abstract

  • Patient satisfaction is an important outcome measurement in TKA/THA surgery. Patient satisfaction can be evaluated from 2 perspectives, determinants of satisfaction and components of satisfaction.(5) In total joint arthroplasty, improvements in satisfaction can be achieved by examining these perspectives. Patient satisfaction is one of the many PROMs used in orthopedic surgery and is an integral part of the growing sentiment to evaluate surgery from the patient's perspective as well as from the surgeon's. The importance of measuring outcomes from the patient perspective is integral to today's patient-centered models of care.
