Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that affects the knee and is caused by the
breakdown and eventual loss of the cartilage of one or more joints.
Cartilage is a protein substance that serves as a “cushion” between the
bones of the joints. Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative arthritis.
Osteoarthritis commonly affects the hands, feet, spine, and large weight- bearing joints, such as the hips and knees. Most cases of osteoarthritis have no known cause and are referred to as primary osteoarthritis. When the cause of the osteoarthritis is known, the condition is referred to as secondary osteoarthritis.
