Wear and tear on the hip and knee joints can occur for various reasons – advancing age, injury from trauma or sporting activities or other medical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. This damage can significantly affect your quality of life. Simple activities such as walking, climbing stairs or getting in and out of a chair become difficult and painful. Surgery becomes a preferred option when medications, walking aids and changes in your normal routine fail to improve your symptoms.
