Healthy Living: 3D Knees
In the past 10 years, the number of total knee replacements in the U.S. has doubled, and many of those patients are much younger than ever before.
Replacement knees typically come off the shelf in several sizes, but they don’t always fit right causing pain and other complications.
But now, new technology allows doctors to make replacement knees that are the perfect fit.
3D knee replacement is covered by most insurance companies.
Projections show that by 2030, 3 to 4 million knee replacement surgeries will be done every year in the United States.
