November 19 program conducted by Orthopedic Surgeon Daniil Polishchuk, MD
WARWICK – (Nov. 6) Arthritis and pain in your knees and hips can keep you from enjoying the simplest of life’s pleasures.
Joint replacement and pain-free movement will be the subjects Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Daniil Polishchuk will address at an informational presentation open to the public at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, November 19. The presentation will be held in the Greenbrier Room at Mount Alverno Center, 20 Grand Street, Warwick, NY. Seating is limited and all those planning to attend are asked to register as soon as possible by calling 1-888-606-2255.
Modern joint replacement surgery involves removal of the worn cartilage from both sides of the joint, followed by resurfacing of the joint with a metal and plastic replacement implant that looks and functions much like your normal joint. Although nearly every joint in the body can be replaced, most replacement surgeries involve the hip or knee.
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons joint replacement surgery is undoubtedly one of the greatest medical advances of our time. Hip and knee replacements have been performed in millions of Americans over the last four decades. These procedures have improved patients' quality of life by easing pain, improving range of motion, and increasing activity levels.
Daniil Polishchuk, MD, an orthopedic surgeon affiliated with St. Anthony Community Hospital in Warwick, NY, graduated from SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York in 2006. He completed his orthopedic internship and residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark and his adult hip and knee reconstruction fellowship in 2012 at Columbia University Medical Center in New York.
Dr. Polishchuk has a distinguished research background. He has published his findings in numerous orthopedic journals including Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery and Journal of Arthroplasty.
