Hormone replacement therapy lowers risk of repeat knee, hip surgery

(January 27, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Oxford - Hormone replacement therapy greatly reduces risk of repeat knee/hip replacement surgery, according to a report published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases. Researchers compared over 2700 women taking HRT to 8100 women not taking the therapy--all of whom had undergone a knee or hip replacement therapy. Results showed that those taking HRT regularly for at least 6 months after their surgery were at 38% reduced risk of having a repeat surgery.
