Living in immigrant communities does not impact total knee arthroplasty outcomes: experience from a high-volume center in the United States.

Summary of "Living in immigrant communities does not impact total knee arthroplasty outcomes: experience from a high-volume center in the United States."

Community characteristics such as poverty affect total knee arthroplasty (TKA) outcomes. However, it is unknown whether other community factors such as immigrant proportion (IP) also affect outcomes. Our objective was to determine the association of neighborhood IP on preoperative (pre-op) and 2-year postoperative (post-op) Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) pain and function after elective TKA.
