Many people with arthritis think joint replacement surgery is the only treatment option that will relieve their arthritis symptoms. Regardless of which joints are affected by arthritis, in many instances, joint preservation can be achieved without a total joint replacement.

Join us at our next Arthritis Talks as orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Femi Ayeni, discusses:

  • Non-operative options to treat arthritis-related joint pain

  • Minimally invasive surgical options

  • New and emerging approaches to joint surgery

  • Determining the best treatment option for you
