As we get older, we become more vulnerable to conditions like arthritis as well as injuries that can lead to serious joint and muscle problems. Surgery is a common solution to these physical impairments. For example, more than 75,000 hip fractures occur in the UK each year, many of which result in hospitalisation and surgery, according to the NHS. Similarly, the number of people who have knee surgery across the country can reach 70,000 annually.
