Summary:

More than 7.2 million persons in the United States have had hip or knee replacement procedures. The number of people having total knee arthroplasty has increased significantly in the past 25 years, driven in part by an increase in the number of aging persons and by increasing rates of obesity. This two-part continuing education series will educate healthcare providers about total hip arthroplasty and total knee arthroplasty. 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.
