Bone and joint infections comprise a large array of diseases ranging from infections of artificial joints to foot infections in diabetics to infections involving the spine. In the United States, more than 1 million hip and knee replacements and 1.62 million instrumented spinal procedures occur annually. In addition, there are more than 30 million diabetics in the United States. Given these large numbers, even a small rate of infectious complications could result in a large burden of infectious disease that can cause significant impact on health and result in permanent disability if not effectively addressed. Bone and joint infections can be difficult to treat and the source of much stress in an individual’s life.
