Hip and knee replacements are the most common total joint replacements performed in the United States. Each year over 1.1 million Americans undergo a hip (400,000) or knee (700,000) replacement. Joint replacement is serious surgery and multiple articles have been published confirming that high-volume, more experienced surgeons consistently obtain the best results for their patients.
