How do I interpret the KOOS/KOOS Jr insights?

The Knee Disability and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) is a patient reported outcomes measure used to evaluate the effectiveness of a total knee arthroplasty on patients. It is scored on a scale of 0 to 100 with a score of 0 representing total knee disability and a 100 representing perfect knee health.

Baseline surveys are sent prior to the intervention for knee disability (the total knee arthroplasty). In reviewing your physicians’ scores, you should expect to see a lower baseline score for patients followed by increasing scores with each subsequent administration point.
