This observational cohort study from the Swedish spine registery reports the one-year quality-of-life changes for 230 patients. Following surgery, 80% reported improved quality-of-life, but the majority of patients did not reach population norms. This paper provides interesting information on patient-centered outcomes from a comprehensive study population.
