Preoperative diagnosis predictive of patient satisfaction after lumbar spine surgery

Preoperative diagnosis predictive of patient satisfaction after lumbar spine surgery

Researchers identified patients who underwent lumbar spine surgery and were enrolled in the Quality Outcomes Database. Patients completed the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) and Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) for back pain and leg pain preoperatively and at 1 year after surgery. Investigators grouped patients according to their diagnosis and response to a question regarding satisfaction.

Results from this study indicated patient satisfaction after lumbar spine surgery was predicted by preoperative diagnosis.
