NEW LENOX — An injury to the knee can result in damage to the meniscus, ligaments and cartilage. Actions such as squatting and kneeling and high-impact activities such as jogging, sports and aerobics can increase the risk of a knee injury.
On Jan. 17, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Robert Daley will offer a lecture on the Subchondroplasty procedure to educate area residents on bone marrow lesions, their link to knee pain and a new innovative treatment for these bone defects.
The program, Chronic Knee Pain: A New Treatment, will begin at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 17 in the Silver Cross Hospital Pavilion A Conference Center, 1890 Silver Cross Blvd., New Lenox.
This program is geared toward people who suffer from chronic knee pain and knee injuries to provide information on new technology and treatments. Daley will share information about the Subchondroplasty procedure, which is a new, minimally invasive joint- preserving surgical option for patients with painful bone defects and knee osteoarthritis.
