When our bodies break down, most of us hate to admit it. We work through the pain and avoid being a hassle to ourselves or anyone else. But unfortunately, bodies and body parts that show signs of trauma (busted up shoulders, and backs, and knees, etc) have a better chance of making a full recovery if surgery is done promptly.
Trying to quantify the timeliness of knee surgery in particular has been the chore of Northwestern University research for some time now, with results that were published earlier today.
90% of patients with knee osteoarthritis who would potentially benefit from knee replacement are waiting too long to have it and getting less benefit. In addition, about 25% of patients who don’t need it are having it prematurely when the benefit is minimal.
