Forget the Presidential Suite at Trump Tower.
If you want to see a TRULY valuable piece of real estate, take a peek in an operating room where knee replacements are done.
They can do about four a day in those ORs — and at a cost of up to $50,000 a pop, that means a single room could rake in $200,000 PER DAY.
That’s how knee replacement surgery has become a $10.2 billion industry, generating almost as much revenue every year as Starbucks.
Now, the latest research shows how those operations have something else in common with Starbucks: They’ll both give you the bitter taste of disappointment!
The study exposes the ugly truth about knee replacement surgeries, revealing how in many cases — possibly even MOST cases — they just plain DON’T work.
That’s because unlike years ago, when a knee replacement was an absolute last-resort surgery for people with the worst possible degeneration inside the joint, the folks getting the procedure today often have nothing more than mild arthritis.
But rip the whole thing out and start all over?
Not on your life!
As a result, the study of 4,500 folks who had a knee replaced due to arthritis finds the surgery has “minimal effects on quality of life.”
There were some improvements in pain, stiffness, and function — but mostly in folks with the most severe form of arthritis.
For everyone else, the study finds the operation is “economically unjustifiable.”
I’d add ETHICALLY unjustifiable, too!
After all, these docs know the score. They’re keeping up with the science, and they’re reading the same research as me. They’ve seen plenty of studies to know that knee surgeries aren’t all that — and they know that up to a third of all knee replacement patients end up battling chronic pain AFTER the operation.
They know it… yet they keep pushing surgery anyway, all in the name of making a quick buck.
It’s time to stop trusting these crooks and trust the science instead — and the science clearly shows you can stop the damage, ease the pain, restore function and just plain FEEL BETTER without surgery.
It starts with giving your knees what they need to get back into fighting shape.
Millions of older folks rely on glucosamine and chondroitin, which can work wonders for many, but there’s something else out there that’s even better: a natural form a collagen called UC-II that’s run rings around glucosamine and chondroitin in multiple studies.
Look for it in a natural joint support formula from a maker you trust.
