The most common form of arthritis, this chronic, degenerative joint disease is characterized by the breakdown of joint cartilage. Although it can occur in any joint, usually it affects the hands, knees, hips, or spine.
With advancements in surgical techniques, materials, and patient selection, total joint replacement is no longer limited by age.
