Joint pain can have a marked effect on the quality of a person’s life. Those suffering from pain in the knee and/or hip not only suffer discomfort, but often are unable to participate in many activities they enjoy.

At our next KnowledgeFirst forum, orthopedic surgeons, Dr. Joseph Conflitti and Dr. D. Scott Devinney, will discuss the latest advances in knee and hip care.

Dr. Conflitti will discuss partial knee resurfacing, a minimally invasive treatment option for adults with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee. Dr. Devinney will discuss advances that allow for more accurate alignment and positioning of implants during hip replacement surgery.


Parking is available next to the ETMC Pavilion, 801 Clinic Drive in Tyler.

Gates will open at 11:15 a.m.

Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m.
