ORLive Presents: State-of-the-Art Hip Surgeries for Active Adults

Webcast: From Thomas Jefferson University Hospital: September 24, 2008 4:30 PM EDT

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2008) - On Wednesday, September 24, at 4:30 p.m. EDT, join orthopedic surgeons from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia as they discuss and demonstrate state-of-the-art surgical options for young and active older adults with hip disease.

William J. Hozack, MD states, "The potential advantages of hip resurfacing are the resurfacing of bone, the potential for a more normal feeling hip, because we're not removing the ball and putting a pin down inside but really capping the femur. With those two things in mind and the fact that we have reasonably good tangible results, I think that it's a reasonable operation to do in the appropriate patient."

Viewers are invited to e-mail questions to the physicians during the program. CME credit is available to medical professionals who view this program.
