Patient-reported outcome and satisfaction scores have become increasingly important in evaluating successful surgery. This case-matched control study compared patient-reported outcome and satisfaction data following hip resurfacing and total hip arthroplasty. Thirty-three consecutive patients selected for hip resurfacing were compared with 99 patients undergoing cemented total hip replacement (THR), matched for age, sex and pathology. Participants completed a Short-Form 12 Health Survey (SF-12) and Oxford Hip Score questionnaire preoperatively and 6 months post operatively with an additional patient satisfaction questionnaire. There was no difference in length of hospital stay. While both groups reported improved outcome scores, multivariate regression analysis did not demonstrate any significant benefit for one group over the other. Both groups reported high levels of satisfaction, which tended to be better in patients undergoing hip resurfacing.
