Summary:

More than 1 million joint replacements are done in the United States each year; of these, there are about 719,000 knee replacement procedures and 332,000 hip replacement procedures. The number of people having total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has increased significantly in the past 25 years, driven in part by an increase in the aging population and increasing rates of obesity. This two-part continuing education series will provide healthcare providers with information about total hip arthroplasty (THA) and TKA. Part 1 discusses the effects of arthritis on the knee and hip as weight-bearing joints, outlines indications for joint replacement, and reviews joint replacement surgical procedures and patient management by interprofessional healthcare providers.
