Age is the major risk factor for osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, however young people can also have
OA. The aetiology is usually different in young population than the elderly population. Diagnosis is
often delayed and sometimes difficult because of higher tolerance to pain. Some considerations
should be taken into account when choosing a treatment modality in young due to their high
expectations. Bearing this in mind, the diagnosis and treatment of knee OA in young adults should
be scrutinized well.
