Description: Although total joint replacement is highly successful at treating advanced kip or knee osteoarthritis, there is substantial evidence that disparities exist in total joint replacement utilization in non-VA settings, with racial and ethnic disparities being the most documented. This cyber seminar will cover our systematic literature review, which compares what is known about disparities in total joint replacement in the VA context with disparities in non-VA settings. We will then discuss the report’s findings, as well as future research needs.
