Of 30,632 patients with total joint arthroplasty identified, 34.5% underwent total hip arthroplasty and 65.5% had total knee arthroplasty. Most patients remained the same weight during the year before and after the procedure. Before and after total hip arthroplasty, men were less likely to lose or gain weight than were women. Older patients were less likely to gain weight. Specific groups are more susceptible to weight change and could benefit from weight management interventions.
