The Orthopedic Hospital kicks off 2016 surgery series with discussion about finding relief from aching ankles
(April 4, 2016) – Healthy ankles are one of the keys to active living. That’s why it’s important to care for the joints and tendons that keep your ankles â€” and you â€” in motion.
Patients who suffer from chronic ankle pain caused by arthritis, other joint disease or previous injury and suspect surgery may be the next step to relief and recovery are invited to attend the first installment of The Orthopedic Hospital of Lutheran Health Network’s 2016 surgery series. Orthopedic surgeon Matthew Beuchel, MD, and nurse practitioner Cindy Gorrell, NP, will be the featured speakers at a free information session called “Aching Ankles? Take the First Step Toward Relief” on Tuesday, April 19, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The presentation will take place in the 7836 building on the Lutheran Hospital campus. This is the first building on the right after entering the campus from West Jefferson Boulevard.
Highlights of this information session are intended to help attendees:
- Find out more about ankle procedures to relieve pain and improve function, including total ankle replacement
- Learn about The Orthopedic Hospital’s PACE Clinic, which provides preoperative evaluation and support to maximize postop outcomes
- Get answers to your questions about aching ankles, potential surgical solutions and more
