About Joint Reconstruction
Joint reconstruction is a procedure in which a damaged or dysfunctional joint or tissue is replaced by an artificial prosthesis. Artificial prostheses are made up of different types of materials, including metals, plastics, and ceramics. The common types of joint replacement procedures include hip and knee replacement procedures, and procedures on extremities such as ankles, wrists, shoulders, and elbows.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A high incidence of obesity among people has a positive impact on the growth of the market. Obesity is a major cause of knee arthritis resulting in excessive fat accumulation and impairment of an individual's health.” People in the highest quintile of body weight are at up to 10 times the risk of developing knee osteoarthritis than those in the lowest quintile.
According to the report, high prevalence of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis is one of the major drivers of this market. Osteoarthritis is the most common joint problem in western countries. For instance, in the US, about 70 percent of adults aged between 55 and 78 suffer from the disease, which is expected to increase during the forecast period. Rheumatoid arthritis affects 0.5-1 percent people of the total population each year.
Further, the report states that the use of defective prostheses causes post-surgery complications resulting in noncompliance among the patients. These complications include blood clotting at the site of surgery, ligament or artery damage, fractures, and wound infections.
