The following is a news release from Lake Charles Memorial Hospital:

Crackles and pops can be delightful – if they're coming from our breakfast cereal.  Unfortunately for the many people with knee issues such as osteoarthritis or previous injuries, these, as well as nagging aches and pains, can really limit an active lifestyle. 

For more information on new innovations in knee replacement, including TruMatch® surgery, join orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Nathan Cohen for Injury or Age Got You Weak in the Knees?, a free seminar.

Dr. Cohen specializes in joint resurfacing, joint replacement and arthroscopic surgery of the knees and hips, and is a founding member of Orthopaedic Specialists at Memorial Hospital. 

Dr. Cohen's initial education was in chemical engineering followed by a Masters in medical engineering from world-renowned Imperial College, University of London, England.  He is a graduate of the University of Western Ontario Medical School, and completed his internship at St. Paul's Hospital at the University of British Columbia, followed by his residency at University Hospital and Victoria Hospital at the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada. 

Injury or Age Got You Weak in the Knees? is a free seminar being held at 12 noon on Friday, March 1, in the Shearman Conference Center at Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard. Light lunch will be provided, and reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance.
