Frequently Asked Questions

What is Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It is a degenerative joint disease that causes deterioration of cartilage between bones. It can be caused by aging, genetics, obesity, and joint injuries from sports, work, or accidents.

In 2012, 92% of hip joints replaced in the UK were needed because of osteoarthritis.

In the same year, 98% of the knee joints replaced in the UK were because the patient was diagnosed with osteoarthritis.
