Join us at 7:00pm on Monday, August 27 for:
Cartilage Injury: Does Arthritis Start In Your Teens?
with Dennis Crawford, MD, PhD, OHSU Department of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation
When does arthritis start? Is exercise good for our joints? Considerations on cartilage and ligament injury and how these common problems, resulting from sporting activity can be associated with the start of arthritis. New therapies to combat this disease will be introduced.
Dr. Crawford joined OHSU in 2002 and specializes in arthroscopic surgery of the knee and shoulder; cartilage and ligamentous injuries; instability of the knee and shoulder; and cartilage replacement and restoration. He is engaged in research investigating the safety of artificial knee cartilage and possibilities for use of cartilage transplant for knee reconstruction.
