webinar2_220pxAge is the major risk factor for osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, however young people can also have OA.
The aetiology is usually different in young population than the elderly population. Diagnosis is often delayed and sometimes difficult because of higher tolerance to pain. Some considerations should be taken into account when choosing a treatment modality in young due to their high expectations. Bearing this in mind, the diagnosis and treatment of knee OA in young adults should be scrutinized well.

The learning objectives of the webinar were:

  • To recognize the young knee OA.
  • To classify/score the level of OA.
  • To predict the outcome.
  • To choose the optimum treatment modality.
