The conference was co-chaired by orthopaedic surgeon Frank Ennis, MD and primary care sports medicine doctor Gloria Cohen, MD. Twelve physicians and a physical therapist from ONS delivered informative, compelling presentations on the most cutting-edge surgeries being performed to restore mobility in the aging population. From shoulders to ankles and many other joints in between, surgeons are making it possible for people to stay active longer through joint replacement surgery. Conference speakers spoke the latest research and outcomes as well as strategies for helping patients prepare for surgery.
“There have been tremendous advances in joint replacement surgeries and many patients who suffer from severe arthritis now automatically look to joint replacement for relief. Mobility is their number one goal,” said Foundation President and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Paul Sethi. “Besides the now common knee, hip and shoulder replacements, there’s been major progress in developing effective wrist, elbow and even ankle replacements. The ONS Foundation is excited to be involved in this exciting research.”
