Orthopaedic Surgeon Featured at September Arthritis Network Meeting

If you are living with a worn or injured hip or knee joint, it can be frustrating, painful and slow down your daily living activities. Sometimes joint replacement surgery is a viable option that can stop or greatly reduce joint pain, increase leg strength, and improve your quality of life by providing easier movement for years.

Charles E. Bryant, M.D., an Oklahoma City orthopaedic surgeon, will discuss “Joint Replacement: When Is It Necessary?” at the September 4 meeting of the Oklahoma Arthritis Network (OAN). The OAN will meet at the Oklahoma State Department of Health, 1000 N.E. 10th Street, Oklahoma City. The meeting will begin at 2 p.m. in Room 314 and is open to the public to answer questions about the procedure and its benefits.

Dr. Bryant practices at INTEGRIS Joint Replacement Center at Baptist Hospital. He is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and the Oklahoma State Orthopaedic Society. Bryant is also a clinical assistant professor at the Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center.

OAN attempts to maximize the quality of life for Oklahomans with arthritis and related health conditions by developing resources, promoting access to health care and offering public health education presentations. Currently, there are about 100 public and private health and non-health related organizations in the OAN.

For more information about arthritis, and to learn more about upcoming speakers, presentations and activities available through the OAN, call Marisa New at 405/271-9444, ext. 56410.
