Joint Replacement Educational Seminar
Wednesday, March, 28, 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Greenwich Library Cole Auditorium
101 West Putnam Avenue, Greenwich
Many people suffer from severe pain caused by arthritis, a fracture or other conditions that make common activities such as walking, putting on shoes or getting in and out of a car, extremely difficult. Today, over 600,000 hip and knee replacement surgeries are performed each year in the United States. Deciding if- and when- it’s time to consider joint replacement surgery are important decisions.
Greenwich Hospital will host a Joint Replacement Educational Seminar at the Greenwich Library led by orthopedic experts Dr. Frank Ennis and Dr. Brian Kavanagh that will provide answers to many commonly asked questions, including how to know if you need a hip or knee replacement, the best way to prepare for surgery, and what to expect from the recovery and rehabilitation process. The surgeons will also discuss what’s new in the field of joint replacement and how materials and techniques have improved over the years.
Registration is required. To register, call 203-863-4277 or 888-305-9253. The Joint Replacement Educational Seminar will also be made available in an online video on the hospital website, www.greenhosp.org and at www.onsmd.com after April 11.
