Elderly individuals who are overweight often struggle with knee pain, as the combination of age-related degeneration and the strain of excess weight on knee joints is increasing. Due to lower bone density and muscle strength in older patients, their recovery post-surgery can be more challenging. Additionally, the added weight on the knee joint can accelerate wear and tear processes, complicating surgery and potentially compromising long-term results. To improve outcomes for elderly patients undergoing knee replacement surgeries, it is recommended to focus on weight management and exercise routines to reduce risks associated with obesity. Despite efforts such as dieting or avoiding physical activity to lose weight, many patients find it difficult to achieve significant weight loss and experience worsening pain over time.
