Highest-Rated US Hospitals For Hip & Knee Replacements

22KNEE-1445460477281-master1050For the first time, Consumer Reports has rated hospitals on how well their patients fare during and after elective surgery, including hip and knee replacements. The Ratings, based on billing data, look at the percentage of a hospital’s Medicare patients who die in the hospital or stay longer than expected for their procedure. Research suggests that although there are other factors that can cause a prolonged hospital stay, the better hospitals can do in those two measures overall, the fewer complications their patients are likely to experience.

These surgery Ratings are part of an ongoing effort by Consumer Reports to use the best available data to help consumers compare hospital performance and make informed choices about their health care.
