Obesity and Orthopedics

Orthopedists (as well as other musculoskeletal specialists such as physiatrists, sports medicine physicians, and rheumatologists) see patients with osteoarthritis (OA) on a daily basis. It is a common degenerative disease process that affects the synovial joints in the body. OA of the hip and knee is the leading cause of walking-related disability in the United States.
