According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) more over 7 million people in the United States have an arthroplasty . The most successful and prevalent type of arthroplasty for the past 45 years has been the surgical replacement of arthritic or joint surface with a prothesis. Hip and knee arthroplasties are the two most common surgeries in the United States, with up to one million procedures performed each year.
