Description

A Newsweek analysis looks at arthritis as one of the most wide-spread and dangerous diseases of our time, since "this year American surgeons will perform as many as 266,000 total knee replacements and 160,000 artificial hip implants." The story describes the main types of arthritis, and lists some advantages and disadvantages of the medicines used to treat them. The article reveals that "injuries that appear to heal perfectly well sometimes have devastating effects decades later." The main conclusion is that "with new warnings out about the best available pain relief, treating it is more complicated than ever."
