Summary

Low vitamin d levels are common among patients undergoing orthopedic surgery. However, very little is known about how vitamin d affects outcomes in patients undergoing total joint replacement surgery. Our study will look at how common low vitamin d status is among patients undergoing total hip and total knee replacement surgery. We will also look at how vitamin d levels affect complication rates and hospital readmission rates.
