The rate of adherence and follow up visits decreases as patients progress further out from surgery. 3 The improved health outcomes of metabolic and bariatric surgery are undeniable, however, the high frequency of micronutrient deficiencies, especially those that are under-recognized and left untreated, can lead to irreversible consequences. 4 by CASSIE I.

Jones, MD, MS, FASMBS FEATURED STUDENT Brian W. Yang The Effects of Weight Loss and Bariatric Surgery on Knee Osteoarthritis INTRODUCTION Osteoarthritis is the most common type of joint disorder in the United States, caused by the progressive mechanical wear of cartilage within the joint space. 1 In the knee, this leads to pain, swelling, and decreased function. More than half of adults in the United States diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis will have severe pain that fails nonsurgical treatment and subsequently require a total knee replacement. 2 Risk factors for knee osteoarthritis include advanced age, female gender, repetitive joint injury, joint malalignment, and chronic knee laxity. 1 However, one of the most significant modifiable risk factors for osteoarthritis is obesity. 1,3 In a recent meta-analysis, a five-unit increase in body mass index (BMI) was associated with a 35- percent increased risk of knee osteoarthritis. 4 T h e M E D I C A L S T U D E N T N o t e b o o k
