Abstract [en]

It has been claimed that there are considerable differences between pri-vate and non-private patients with regard to the outcome of back surgery.This can be found in the yearly report from the register concerning backsurgery in Sweden. However, the results seem doubtful and the referencescould not be found. Therefore, we analyze the data about nearly 1200patients from the clinic of back surgery in Str¨angn¨as (CSS). It includesthree time periods with somewhat different questionnaires from 1986 to2007 with both private and non-private patients. In the third period,the patients have been evaluated using the SF-36 questionnaire. The re-sults show that most of the differences between private and non-privatepatients are minor and not statistically significant.
