Core Tip Total knee arthroplasties (TKA) are one of the most common surgeries performed in the United States. Even with its popularity, it has been shown that African Americans and women are offered this surgery less than their white male counterparts. We explore the role of potential factors connected to the underutilization of TKA in minorities and women as well as assess patient expectations and outcomes associated with race and gender. We conclude that there are no differences in outcomes between race and gender which leads us to believe that TKA should be offered to everyone equally to remedy disparities.
