Did you know that nearly 1 in 2 people may develop knee osteoarthritis by age 85, and 1 in 4 people may develop hip arthritis in their lifetime? Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease, is a leading cause of joint pain. The good news is there are a variety of treatment options available including joint replacement surgery.
If you have had a joint replacement or are interested in learning more about hip and knee replacement at The Orthopedic Institute of Doylestown Hospital — including DASH, our rapid recovery program — join us for a morning of fun, education and exercise at the annual Joint Jaunt!
