—How Can Our Orthopedic Expertise Ease Your Joint Pain?
Indiana University Health Saxony Hospital will host a free seminar "How Can Our Orthopedic Expertise Ease Your Joint Pain?" on Wednesday, March 18, at 6 pm at the IU Health Saxony Medical Offices Building (located at 13100 E. 136th St., Fishers, IN).
If hip or knee pain prevents you from doing the things you enjoy, imagine the difference a joint replacement surgery could make in your life. Join Dr. Philip Ireland, board-certified orthopedic surgeon with IU Health Physicians, to learn more about strategies and surgical techniques in joint replacement, including the latest technology in biomaterials, computer navigation and other treatment options to ease your joint pain.
While the source of joint pain can differ, lifestyle changes and medication often eases pain and reduces swelling. However, they can't restore lost cartilage, tissue or bone. If pain continues and interferes or limits participation in everyday activities, it may be time to consider joint replacement surgery.
Following this educational physician-led presentation, attendees can participate in an open-forum Q&A with Dr. Ireland, asking questions about osteoarthritis and how to evaluate if and when joint replacement is the right choice.
A light meal will be catered by the Atrio. Space is limited. Participants are encouraged to register early at 317.678.3627.
