If you're suffering from knee problems, surgery is not the only solution. Here's why

The study has focused on the key elements of an operation and how patients can look for non-surgical ways to cure knee and joint pain.

Researchers scrutinised a set of studies on 10 surgeries, including knee, wrist and spine. While in a few cases surgeries proved beneficial, the majority showed that exercise, physiotherapy, proper medication among other factors have worked better.
