There are multi-factorial reasons for why the hip and knee joint breakdown. Watch as our orthopedic surgeons explain how and why these joints develop issues for patients. Watch as Dr. Door explains, “there's a lot of misconception about what causes hip arthritis, and I think the first thing I should do is just say that hip arthritis is not a bone problem. Most people think arthritis means a bone problem, but it's a loss of the cartilage. Once you've lost all your cartilage, then that's where the term bone on bone comes from, because now the cartilage is gone, the two bones are touching. And so, that's what arthritis is.”
