Age is progress, and age is decline. While in the first half of life, age enables organisms to function better, in the latter half, it takes away from them, in terms of physical strength and immunity. This is why the elderly fall sick more often than younger people, which is why the former age group witnesses a higher hospitalization and surgery rate. As per the 2019 World Population Ageing report published by the United Nations, people aged 65 years or more will almost double, from 703 million in 2019 to 1.5 billion in 2050. Therefore, with a rise in the geriatric population, the volume of surgeries is also going up.
