Hospitals struggling to keep up with need for hip and knee replacement surgeries
from Toronto Star
Hip and knee replacements in Canada are rising at a rate that is outpacing the ability of hospitals to keep up with demand, according to a report released by the Canadian Institute for Health Information. An aging population, rising rates of obesity and osteoarthritis, and improvements in surgical practice and technology that make more people candidates for the procedure are all contributing to the rising need for joint replacement surgeries.
