knee and hip repacements

It’s not to say that you need to replace a knee or a hip just to lose weight. Another study has revealed that significant weight decreases have been reported to those who underwent athroplasty – also known as hip or knee replacement surgeries. Either doctors know best how to drastically reduce weight for these cases, or it’s out of the need that the new hip or knee won’t function well if weight is not reduced. The study has been conducted from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and in fact one of the firsts to establish proper correction to the ever-increasing BMI’s of North America in the age group of 29 to 73 years. A 21.5% BMI decrease was reported in knee replacement patients than a mere hip replacement which garnered at 16.9%. Weight loss was more pronounced in patients who were categorized as obese having a BMI of more than 30.

It’s not only to improve and to relieve pain and disability, but indeed the weight loss correction is more defined post-surgery. Overweight incidences and obesity has constantly increased in the last 50 years where lifestyle has been greatly modified affecting patterns of diet and exercise. Being the cornerstones of weight management, obesity and weight gain strikes whenever there’s a problem with either or both. Osteoarthritis is a valid concern which decreases mobility and their ability to exercise, as they are usually hopeful that weight loss might be an easier alternatively after surgery.

End result, nutritional guidance and long-term fitness goals in arthroplasty postoperative patients were shown to be more effective. But how does it compare to the usual weight loss programs we find across the internet?

Another study will have to answer this question, but an educated guess would perhaps say – it has to establish long term goals for it to work well.
