Married patients experience better outcomes following total joint arthroplasty with increased psychosocial support

The study, presented at the 2021 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), found that, overall, married patients or those with a live-in partner experienced shorter surgical times, shorter lengths of stay (LOS) in the hospital, fewer post-operative emergency department (ED) visits, lower readmission rates and, in some cases, better patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) than those who weren't married or lived alone.
