Arthritis can be a devastating blow to the aging athlete. Due to advances in modern medicine and lifestyle changes by our health conscious society, people are living longer and exercising longer. Often our heart and lungs and other organ systems are perfectly capable of letting us exercise and compete beyond retirement and into old age. Many times, though, arthritis and the pain that comes with it forces otherwise healthy individuals to give up their activities, drastically affecting their quality of life and happiness. With the improvement of biomaterials and techniques used in orthopedics, knee replacement surgery can be an answer for some of these individuals who would like to continue sports.
