Also known as osteoarthritis, DJD affects more than 30% of the US population over age 65 and is characterized by joint pain and stiffness and a progressive loss of mobility. DJD occurs when the cartilage that cushions the joint breaks down and begins to wear away.

By 2030, a projected 67 million people will have been diagnosed with DJD.

Understanding the latest research on the causes of the disease and the surgical and non-surgical treatment options will be the focus of this seminar.
