Alleviating Knee and Hip Joint Pain -- Tuesday, May 13, 6:30 pm.   Pain in a joint often arises due to cartilage damage, either from injury or general wear and tear. As a result, the joint becomes less mobile and even more painful. Learn the causes, symptoms and treatment alternatives for knee and hip osteoarthritis pain, including therapy, diet, medications and minimally invasive surgical techniques from Dr. Donald Bassman, orthopedic surgeon.
