Osteoarthrosis, also known as degenerative joint disease (DJD) is a progressive and chronic disease caused by the constant deterioration of a lesion in the articular cartilage of the joint caused by continuous friction which creates bony spurs and cysts on the margins of the joints. As natural wear and tear takes its course, this superficial damage becomes malignant, affecting the entire structure of the joint and destroying its mechanics. Since there is no surgical solution for this stage of the disease, the only solution offered today is joint replacement or Arthroplasty. This is the reason patients suffer years of pain, medication problems, swollen joints, tenderness or redness of joints and limited movement before they are finally operated with a joint prosthesis.Over 70% of people over the age of 65 show some degree of osteoarthritis upon x-ray examinations and according to the World Health Organization (W.H.O), it is predicted that 9.6 %of men and 18% of women over 60 years of age will suffer from Arthrosis, representing the fourth most debilitating disease worldwide. As the population continues to live longer and continue to lead active lives, arthrosis will continue to increase within the population and will demand more pressure from the Medical world to resolve this in a pre-emptive manner, by stemming this chronic, debilitating disease before it affects peoples psychological and physical health. There are countless research papers written about arthrosis discussing the histology, pathology, genetics, environmental factors, body weight, sports related causes, and more, however this research and the investigations haven’t tackled the real issue which is how to treat the initial damage in the articular cartilage of the joints, thus preventing the onset of this degenerative disease.Bio Total Hip is a long overdue innovation that has the potential to not only save on patient costs by a large margin, but more importantly it has the possibility to help people live a pain free life.
