are improved. Patients' lifestyles are definitely better after these surgeries," Scuderi said.

A second study slated to be presented at the meeting by Swiss researchers showed that patients undergoing total hip replacement surgery are more active than were patients who got the procedure a decade ago. They also found that most of them return to their previous recreational activities, including biking, hiking, swimming and golfing.

Scuderi said there are about 720,000 total knee replacement surgeries and 450,000 total hip replacement surgeries in the United States annually. On average, he estimated the cost for the surgery, hospital stay and implants for an average joint replacement is about $25,000, not including the cost of rehabilitation.

Because the studies were presented at a medical meeting, the data and conclusions should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.
