At age 46, Pittsburgh fitness instructor Lori Elias is in better physical shape than many women half her age -- with one possible exception. Years of intense fitness has paid a toll on her right knee in the form of osteoarthritis. It's a common injury that physicians are seeing more and more frequently as active people in their 40s and 50s begin to wear their joints down. Fortunately, Lori found her way to Dr. John Christoforetti, an orthopaedic surgeon and joint preservation specialist at The Western Pennsylvania Hospital.
