Get Answers about Hip and Knee Pain from Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center Joint Specialist

07.13.2012
Contact: Erica Rosenthal, Phone: (330) 375-3052

What:
Are you or a loved one experiencing knee or hip pain and want to know more about the treatment options? Join Jonathan Kase, M.D., Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center specialist, for a free community health talk on joint health and joint replacement surgery. Dr. Kase, a fellowship-trained sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery specialist, can answer your questions and share information on joint health, signs and symptoms of joints wearing out, when you should see a specialist, and the truth about joint replacement surgery.

A Medina native, Dr. Kase grew up interested and involved in medicine under the influence of his father, Summa Health System family medicine physician Jeffrey Kase, M.D. Outside of his local family ties to medicine, Dr. Kase worked as an orderly at the Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center and completed his residency at Summa Health System. His practice is located in the medical building adjacent to Summa Wadsworth-Rittman Hospital.

Why:               
Many people may think that they cannot use their knee well enough to kneel or go up and down stairs after knee replacement surgery; however, both are not true. Becoming familiar with joint replacement surgery as well as the usual causes and symptoms of joint pain and joints wearing out can help you determine if and when to seek appropriate treatment and ongoing care in order to live a pain-free lifestyle.

When:             
Wed. July 25
7 p.m.

Where:            
Summa Health Center at Lake Medina
3780 Medina Rd., off Route 18

RSVP:             
Call (855) 728-4660 to reserve your spot or sign up online. Refreshments and light snacks will be provided.
