A healthcare company in the UK has found that there is a rise in young people needing medical procedures that would normally be associated with old people. In fact, haemorrhoid removal and varicose veins are common procedures among 26-35 and 36-45 year olds. And knee and back operations are common among the 36-45 year olds. There has also been a rise in millennials requiring knee surgery.
