When to Consider Knee Replacement
If someone has severe arthritis and conservative measures no longer help, knee replacement surgery is often the best option for permanent pain relief and restored mobility. Major advances over the past decade have revolutionized the way we perform the surgery, and nobody should live with unrelenting pain.
Robotic Assisted Knee Replacement Surgery
Increasing numbers of younger people are opting for knee replacement, unwilling to take arthritis pain sitting down. Surgical advances such as computer-assisted surgery have made it a viable option for people in their 40s and 50s. The main concern in younger individuals is that the implant will wear out. Although a knee replacement can last 20 years or even longer, it doesn't last forever.
Partial Knee Replacement
During knee replacement surgery, damaged bone and cartilage is resurfaced with metal and plastic components. In unicompartmental knee replacement (also called "partial" knee replacement) only a portion of the knee is resurfaced. This procedure is an alternative to total knee replacement for patients whose disease is limited to just one area of the knee.
Knee pain is a very common problem. If your knee has been bothering you for a while or keeping you from activities you enjoy, the new year is a good time to take action. I encourage you to resolve to get the right diagnosis; resolve to take action to relieve the pain; resolve to live life to the fullest, life pain-free.
Many people experience hip pain from time to time, especially if they lead an active lifestyle. A good deal of walking and hiking while on vacation or rushing to finish chores over the holidays can lead to a sore hip. People experience pain from overdoing it. Known as an “overuse injury,” it results from repetitive stress on the muscles, joints and tendons.

Arthritis "Treatments" to Avoid
Advertisements for treatments claiming to cure or slow down arthritis can be found on the Internet, on television and in print ads. They include drinks, certain supplements and rubs. Most are a a waste of money.
