[May 06, 2008]  The rehab services team at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital is hosting a free total joint replacement surgery seminar on May 14 at noon in the ALMH Lincoln Conference Room.

GlassTodd Mourning, rehab services manager, and Kristen Fulton, senior physical therapist, will discuss how patients know it is time to consider joint replacement surgery, the surgical process and postoperative therapy process.

Individuals experiencing chronic pain in their knees or hips are encouraged to attend, as well as family members.

Dr. Rodney Herrin and Dr. Tomasz Borowiecki both perform several joint replacement surgeries at ALMH each year. Therapy begins in the hospital just one day after surgery. Most patients choose to continue their physical therapy at ALMH for all or part of the next six weeks.

Total joint replacement, or arthroplasty, is the most common surgical method in the world today. It has been proven as an effective and practical treatment for severe osteoarthritis, one of the main causes of joint pain.

To register or for additional information regarding the free seminar at ALMH, call the ALMH rehab department at 217-732-5065 or e-mail
