Dr. George "J." Trappey, orthopaedic surgeon and elbow and shoulder specialist, will be the guest speaker at "Easing Elbow Pain," a free seminar at Center for Orthopaedics in Lake Charles. The seminar will take place on Thursday, January 20, at 5:30 pm.
Elbow pain is a common problem that can be caused by sports activities, hobbies, repetitive stress on the job, a traumatic injury or just wear and tear in the joint over time. Common conditions that cause elbow pain include tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, pitcher's elbow, cubital tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendinitis and arthritis. In some cases, pain in your elbow can actually originate from a problem in your shoulder or neck.
Dr. Trappey is originally from New Iberia and joined the Center for Orthopaedics in 2010. He earned his Medical Degree from LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport and completed an Orthopaedic Surgery Residency at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. Dr. Trappey also completed a Fellowship in shoulder and elbow reconstruction surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Medical School.
At the seminar, Dr. Trappey will discuss the different causes of elbow pain as well as the latest treatment options.
