The Joint Institute at Saint Barnabas Medical Center will present The Latest Treatments for Hip and Knee Pain on April 28, 2011, at 7:00 p.m. at the Saint Barnabas Ambulatory Care Center, 200 South Orange Avenue, Livingston, NJ. This free program, open to the public, will include a presentation from orthopedic surgeon Michael Rieber, M.D.
 
Millions of people suffer from pain in their hips and/or their knees.  This seminar will discuss the myriad of treatment options available to address this pain up to and including joint replacement therapy. Each year, hundreds of thousands of people undergo hip or knee replacement surgery. Primary candidates for surgery are individuals with chronic joint pain whose daily activities are limited or eliminated due to pain. The Joint Institute approach aims to relieve pain, restore independence, and return you to work and other daily activities.
 
If your hip or knee pain is dramatically reducing the quality of your life, you should attend this informational seminar.  The Joint Institute’s goal is to get patients back to their old selves faster and with less pain than ever before.  Registration is desired for this program as seating is limited. To register for the program, please call 1-888-SBHS-123 (1-888-724-7123), #4 or visit www.sbhcscalendar.com/sbmc.
