Weight gain or loss can affect post-joint replacement outcomes
from PT Products
A study from the Hospital for Special Surgery shows that following joint replacement, losing or gaining weight may affect long-term outcomes for patients. An HSS study determined that although a number of patients who are overweight are able to lose weight following the procedure, equal numbers of patients actually gain weight after hip or knee replacement. The research team determined that patients who lose weight do better in terms of activity level and function two years down the road.
