Dr. Safet Hatic and Dr. Chad Weber
Dr. Safet Hatic and Dr. Chad Weber, from Orthopedic Associates of Southwest Ohio, spoke on February 2, 2016, at Versailles Health Care Center. They shared their presentation “Managing Arthritis from Head to Toe” with the audience of over 45 people. They took questions from those in attendance during their presentation as well as following it.

The pain and loss of function associated with arthritis affects more than 50 million adults. They reviewed the latest options for managing this tough disease. Both operative and non-operative strategies were discussed with a primary focus the hip, knee, and ankle. Dr. Hatic, who focused on the ankle and foot, commented “Ankle arthritis is becoming more prevalent as we liver longer and ask more of our bodies.”

Dr. Weber asked the crowd, “When do you consider a joint replacement?’ His answer included, “When all non-operative options have failed. It’s an individual decision for each person impacted by decreases in quality of life.” He also offered the following advice, “Heat the area before and ice after to help with joint pain with activity”.
