Joint Replacement Surgery May Not Affect Weight Loss

Why would it?
Hip and knee replacements, also known as total joint arthroplasties (TJAs), are common surgical procedures that relieve pain and increase mobility and could potentially cause weight loss as a by-product.

Knee replacements have long been known to increase mobility in older patients, however, this new research touches on the whether hip and knee replacements actually have weight benefits.
To lose weight one has to burn more Calories than are consumed.

No replaced joint can do that.

No replaced joint can get someone to move.

Given the state of people's self-control, the only thing a replaced joint offers is greater mobility from the couch to the feed bag and back to the couch.
