Patients younger than 65 years undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) have 99 percent implant survivorship at eight years and have low rates of revision and readmission, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, held from March 7 to 11 in Las Vegas.
Arthroscopic knee surgery is used to treat knee conditions, including cartilage injuries, meniscus tears, and ligament problems.
