ETMC will offer a free KnowledgeFirst Forum on joint pain caused by arthritis with Dr. Joseph Conflitti and Dr. Scott Devinney of the ETMC Orthopedic Institute on Tuesday, April 8, at noon in the ETMC Pavilion in Tyler.

"More than 43 million Americans suffer from some form of arthritis but whether it's a daily annoyance or a debilitating disease, you have treatment options," said Dr. Conflitti.

"We will discuss different forms of arthritis, how to diagnose the problem and what you can do to live a pain free life," said Dr. Devinney. "We will discuss lifestyle changes as well as some newer treatment options that can ease the pain and discuss options for total joint replacement."

A light lunch will be served. Parking is available next to the ETMC Pavilion, 801 Clinic Drive in Tyler. Gates open at 11:30 a.m. and the presentation will begin at noon.
