Hip Replacement Patients are Getting Younger

A new study shows that total hip replacement surgeries, also known as hip arthroplasty, are increasing in patients ages 45-54. Even hip replacements for patients in their teens and 20s are becoming more common place; however, alternative treatments are often preferred for younger patients before surgery is considered.
