During knee replacement recovery, avoiding certain activities and behaviors is important to ensure a smooth healing process and minimize the risk of complications.
A gel that combines both stiffness and toughness is a step forward in the bid to create biodegradable implants for joint injuries, according to new UBC research.
Activity level (AL) recommendations following total joint arthroplasty (TJA) remains controversial. Our purpose was to compare implant survivorship of high (HA) and low activity (LA) patients after primary TJA. We hypothesized that there would be no difference in implant survivorship based on AL.
Hip arthritis results from the breakdown of cartilage within your hip joints, causing hip stiffness and pain that can increase with inactivity, standing, and walking.
Gather as much information as possible to make an informed decision about a total knee replacement.
