The hip is second only to the knee as the most common arthritic joint for which patients seek treatment. A recent National Health Survey found the prevalence of hip pain to be 7.2% to 8.2% of the US population. In 2004, direct costs for the management of joint pain, including hip OA were $281.5 billion.
