Get “Hip” About Arthritis With What You “Knee’d” to Know – Attend the Bone and Joint Health Series


For the last decade, the Bone and Joint Health Series has provided education on cutting edge topics in bone and joint health, arthritis, treatment options, and more. Through in-person engagement with community members, the series addresses what matters to people with hip and knee pain in an accessible forum by including opportunities to hear from, ask questions, and connect with experts. All Bone and Joint Health Series events are offered free of charge to attendees, and take place multiple times per year.

The series is presented through a collaboration between the Bone and Joint Center at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital and the AMD3 Foundation, a medical nonprofit based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Led by a recognized expert in orthopaedic surgery, Dr. Anthony M. DiGioia III, the Bone and Joint Health series aims to improve community health and wellness. Collaborations between Dr. DiGioia and area medical partners have facilitated these educational workshops for both care providers and community members seeking information about common bone and joint ailments such as arthritis, as well as advancements in total joint replacement (TJR) surgeries and treatment options.

During the next Bone and Joint Health series on February 8, 2020, attendees can expect a fresh lineup of exhibitors, speakers, panels, and interactive sessions focused on arthritis prevention and treatment options, including same day and one night stay total joint replacements. The February event will also include a special session on gender differences in the diagnosis and treatment of hip and knee arthritis.

This event is FREE and open to both care providers and anyone with hip and knee arthritis. Seating is limited, and registration for the event is required. To sign up for the Bone and Joint Health series on February 8, 2020 at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital, visit www.amd3.org to reserve your spot. If you have any questions about the event or would like to register by phone, contact us at (412) 450-6040.
