Joint Pain Seminar - newsREGISTER ONLINE HERE

Are you one of the millions of Americans who suffer from joint pain caused by arthritis or other conditions? According to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease, Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 30% of adults reported experiencing some type of joint pain during the preceding 30 days. Knee pain was reported by 18% of respondents, followed by pain in the shoulder (9%), finger (7%) and hip (7%). Joint pain can be caused by osteoarthritis, injury, prolonged abnormal posture or repetitive motion.

On Wednesday, Dec. 4, Crouse Hospital will present "Managing Joint Pain: Surgical and Non-Surgical Options in Orthopedic Care." Led by two of the area’s leading, board-certified orthopedic experts, Tim Izant, MD, and Rob Sherman, MD, the presentation will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Ave., Syracuse. Free parking in the Marley and hospital garages will be available.

Dr. Izant, chief of Orthopedics at Crouse Hospital and partner in Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists, and Dr. Sherman, partner in Upstate Bone & Joint Center, will discuss the latest treatments and advancements in orthopedic care. Areas to be covered include anterior approach to hip replacement surgery; advances in knee replacement surgery; and managing hip and knee pain.
