On October 5, from 6-7:30 p.m., the ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education will present a free lecture on the treatment and management of arthritis in the Noble Conference Center at Greenwich Hospital at 5 Perryridge Road as part of the Foundation’s education initiative. More than 70 percent of adults over age 55 have some form of arthritis, the degenerative condition characterized by a gradual wearing away of the joint cartilage. Vast improvements have been made in non-surgical and surgical treatments as more and more people seek solutions for pain relief to maintain an active lifestyle. Board-certified orthopedic surgeon Steven Hindman, MD of ONS will discuss arthritis, the causes of joint and bone pain, the signs and symptoms of various forms of arthritis, and non-surgical and surgical treatment options. The seminar is free.
