Arthritis is the number one cause of joint problems and disability.

1
Approximately 50 million people in the U.S. are affected with this disease.
1
One million new patients develop arthritis each year.

Patients who suffer from arthritis come in all ages, shapes and sizes.

Younger people have a lower risk, yet still make up half of all people affected.1

The number one reason for joint replacement is osteoarthritis. Other common indications include rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis, developmental dysplasia of the hip or fracture of the joint.

Symptoms may include pain, aching, stiffness and swelling in or around the joints that can affect day-to-day activities such as walking, climbing stairs and even sleeping.
