Don’t Live with Joint Pain

Date: 03.27.2013
Contact: Erica Rosenthal Phone: (330) 375-3052

What:               

Are you or a loved one experiencing achy joint pain in your hip or knees and want to know when you should see a specialist? Join Philip Lewandowski, M.D., Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center surgeon, for a free community health talk on joint pain and joint replacement surgery. Dr. Lewandowski, a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in total joint replacement of the hip and knee, can answer your questions and share information on joint health, signs and symptoms of joints wearing out, and when you should see a specialist.

Dr. Lewandowski is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in primary and revision total joint replacement of the hip and knee. He is a graduate of the University of Michigan and The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He served his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Summa Health System and his fellowship in adult reconstruction of the hip and knee at the Anderson Orthopedic Research Institute (Arlington, Virginia). Dr. Lewandowski has earned numerous honors and awards, conducted research and has been published in professional publications. Dr. Lewandowski has been a member of the Crystal Clinic since 1998, and sees patients in the Montrose office.
 
Why:                

Quality of life is the bottom line in deciding if and when to see a joint specialist. If you cannot do the things you enjoy – such as taking long walks, dancing or participating in sports – then it may be time to see a specialist. Becoming familiar with proper joint health, as well as 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.
