Free Seminar Focuses on Hip-joint Preservation

Knowledge Now - Hip Preservation

COLUMBIA, Mo. — The Missouri Orthopaedic Institute will sponsor a free seminar about treatment options for patients experiencing pain or loss of motion due to injury or deformation of the hip socket on Wednesday, May 6. The seminar will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Room 4061 on the fourth floor of the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute at 1100 Virginia Ave.

A treatment plan to preserve the hip joint is an ideal option for individuals who live with pain caused by injury or underlying developmental joint problems. In addition to causing pain, these joints are predisposed to developing degenerative disease. Joint preservation involves the restoration of the patient’s natural joint, relieving pain and delaying the onset of joint degeneration.

Presenters for the seminar include MU orthopaedic surgeons Ajay Aggarwal, MD, assistant professor of orthopaedic surgery at the University of Missouri School of Medicine, and Brett Crist, MD, associate professor of orthopaedic surgery.

Although the seminar is free, space is limited. Please register by calling 573-882-3104.
