"Orthopaedic Pot Luck: Interesting Problems & New Technology" Topic for Free Health Education Lecture

J. Melvin Deese, M.D.January 29, 2015 – Did you know that fragility fractures are often associated with low bone density? What are the latest treatment options designed to help you quickly return to your daily life? Did you know that hip and knee problems can occur as the result of wear and tear over a lifetime of activity, or from injury or disease? The most common causes are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis — both of which not only cause pain, but eventually decrease mobility and significantly threaten independent living.

Join us on Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015, as J. Melvin Deese, M.D., board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with Summit Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Surgery, presents “Orthopaedic Pot Luck: Interesting Problems & New Technology.” The lecture will offer important information on diagnosis and treatment options for upper and lower extremity problems, new orthopaedic technology and more.

The free lecture will take place from 12-1 p.m. at Velocity Health & Fitness, 1520 West Orange Street, Jesup, Ga.
