People Goodman, DOassociate professor of orthopedic surgery at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson and orthopedic surgeon at Banner University Medicine – Tucson, will present a free lecture, “Troubleshooting Knee and Hip Problems,” on Wednesday, March 9, at 18 o’clock

The 75-minute talk will be broadcast live and is open to the public, with time for questions and answers from audience members. Dr. Goodman will share the latest developments in the treatment of hip and knee conditions, including:

  • Partial and total knee and hip joint replacement surgery
  • Robot-assisted orthopedic procedures
  • Joint replacement revision surgery
  • Pre- and post-operative approaches to pain management
  • Non-surgical treatments for knee and hip pain

Several conditions can cause joint pain and disability and cause patients to consider surgical and non-surgical treatment approaches. In many cases, joint pain results from arthritis, a fracture, or another condition that damages the cartilage that lines the ends of bones. Pain is the primary symptom of osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis and one of the leading causes of disability worldwide.

Knee and hip replacements are the most common replacements, and as the population ages, these procedures are on the increase. A 2019 study published in the journal of rheumatology predicts that the number of total knee replacements in the United States will increase to nearly 3.5 million and total hip replacements will increase to nearly 1.5 million by 2040.

The lecture is part of the free “Living Healthy with Arthritis” lecture series presented by the UArizona Arthritis Center at the UArizona College of Medicine – Tucson and supported by the Susan and Saul Tobin Endowment for Research and Education in Rheumatology.

Prior registration is required. For more information or to register, please visit the UArizona Arthritis Center website at arthritis.arizona.edu/healthy-living/tucson-lecture-series or email [email protected] .edu.
