Bruce R. Holladay, M.D. has seen younger, active patients with a need for total knee replacement - but says that doesn't mean they can't be active again. Dr. Holladay recently pointed out that younger patients, even as young as those in their 30s, need to remember a few key points, including:
- A total knee is a man-made product with a finite lifespan.
- An implant requires care to last.
- If you're very young and active, you may outlive your new knee.
