If you need another reason why funds raised for the Ulysses Club Arthritis Fund (UCARF) are so important, a recent article published by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) says
“Information…………….. shows the hospitalisation rate for Australians with osteoarthritis rose by 25% over the 10 years to 2010-11, from 326 hospitalisations per 100,000 people to 408 per 100,000.
Over the same period the joint replacement surgery rate rose by 41%.
'Osteoarthritis is the predominant condition leading to hip and knee replacement surgery in Australia,' said AIHW spokesperson Nigel Harding.
'In 2010-11, there were 115,000 surgical procedures performed on people with a principal diagnosis of osteoarthritis.
'Of these, almost 30% were knee replacements, 20% were hip replacements and about 10% were exploratory surgeries to diagnose the reason for the pain and damage to the joint.'”
