The Peak Joint Replacement Center at St. John’s Medical Center will
present a free educational seminar on arthritis and hip and knee pain
at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, August 12, 2015 at the Teton County Library.
"The Good News about Hip and Knee Pain" will explore the latest
non-surgical and surgical treatments for hip and knee pain.
The seminar will also help individuals with arthritis determine when it’s
time to consider total joint replacement. A question and answer session
will follow the presentation with Jaime Jackson, RN, the orthopedic program manager.
“If you have knee or hip pain, stiffness, or swelling, you may have
arthritis,” according to Jackson. "The good news is many treatments
are now available to control these symptoms, allowing you to move easily
and without pain once again.”
Peak Joint Replacement is a comprehensive program based on a best-practice
model for hip and knee replacement; it is structured around the fundamental
principles of wellness.
The program incorporates advanced, minimally invasive, advanced analgesic,
and rapid-recovery techniques in joint replacement within an environment
that maximizes patient recovery through education, a culture of early
mobility, family involvement, and group interaction. Community education
to increase awareness of musculoskeletal diseases, and their latest treatment
options, is also an integral part of the program.
