Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is happy with the progress made in the joint replacement sector. He is however worried about the number of younger people seeking joint replacements. The average age of those seeking these surgeries has reduced from 67 to 66 years. He sees this as a deterioration of health for many people in their early 60s. One cause of this increase is obesity. Cases of obesity are increasing by the day in the United States. As a result, muscles around key joints are getting too much stress that creates weakness.
