Kettering Medical Center is hosting a seminar for people interested in learning about treatment options for hip pain on Wednesday, November 2 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Kettering Medical Center is located at 3535 Southern Blvd. in Kettering.
The event begins with a mini health fair that features blood pressure checks, nutrition and exercise information, and a wheel of health. Refreshments will be served.
Elizabeth Dulaney-Cripe, MD, an orthopedic surgeon with Kettering Physician Network, will talk about hip pain and when it may be time for a total hip replacement. She will focus on the anterior approach for total hip replacement. The anterior approach creates the incision in the front of the leg instead of the back or side. This approach allows less disruption to the muscles, allowing for faster healing and less risk of dislocation. Overall recovery is much faster.
The event is free but seating is limited. To register, call 937-558-3988 or register online here.
