By age 60, almost everyone has some form of arthritis in at least one joint. With most forms of arthritis, people are faced with pain and swelling of the joints which over time can cause the joint to become severely damaged. With vast improvement in non-surgical treatments and total joint replacement surgery, more and more people are unwilling to let joint pain slow them down and are seeking solutions for relief to regain an active lifestyle.
On Thursday, June 10, board-certified Orthopedic Surgeon Aniefiok Uyoe, MD, will provide a free seminar on arthritis, joint and bone pain at 6 p.m. at the Scott County Library located at 108 S. Main Street. The seminar will focus on causes of pain, signs and symptoms of various forms of joint pain and non-surgical and surgical treatment options.
Dr. Uyoe is an expert on the minimally-invasive approach technique for total hip replacement. Floyd Memorial is the only hospital in Southern Indiana utilizing the hana® Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Surgical Table, which allows the patient to be uniquely positioned for the surgery.
The seminar is free but registration is requested by calling 1-800-4-SOURCE (1-800-476-8723) or by registering online at www.floydmemorial.com.
