People in their 20s are now getting hip replacements

Hip replacements aren’t just for grandparents anymore.

Between 2000 and 2010, the number of hip replacements in people age 45 to 54 more than tripled, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. Locally, at the Hospital for Special Surgery on the Upper East Side, roughly 30 percent of the 4,762 replacement surgeries performed there in 2016 were on patients under 55.
