Is hip or knee pain keeping you from the activities you love?

Joints can be damaged by arthritis, injuries or other causes. Many times, simply years of use may cause the joint to wear away, causing pain, stiffness and swelling. If this sounds like you, keep reading.

Bones are alive, and they need blood to be healthy, grow and repair themselves. Diseases and damage inside a joint can limit blood flow, causing problems.

Approximately 773,000 Americans have a hip or knee replaced each year, and many others are treated through non-surgical measures, which may include exercise, walking aids such as braces or canes, physical therapy, medicines or vitamin supplements.

Joint replacement surgery involves removing a damaged joint and putting in a new one. Only a doctor can tell if you need a joint replaced. Joint replacement may be the best option if you have constant pain and can’t move the joint well – for example, if you have trouble with activities such as walking, climbing stairs and taking a bath.

Williamson Medical Center and Vanderbilt Bone and Joint invite you to meet and speak with our experienced team who has been treating joint conditions in your community for over 30 years.

Find out more about joint pain and the treatment options available, including state-of-the-art joint replacement surgery, by attending a free seminar Thursday, April 12, at Williamson Medical Center.

Registration and light refreshments will begin at 5:30 p.m. with the program beginning at 6 p.m. Tours of the facility will be available.
