OA - SOS: American Osteoarthritis - By the Numbers

More than 32.5 million American adults suffer with OA, and more than five percent of the global population are afflicted with the disease. As our population ages, OA is a growing concern - 100 percent of people will suffer with OA if we live long enough. OA can afflict any and all joints in the body - and today, Americans receive 790,000 knee and 450,000 hip replacements per year, while far larger numbers live with the pain and avoid troublesome joint replacements.
