Suffering from Knee Pain?
Silver Cross Hospital offers free lecture on relief from bone defects that new literature links to chronic knee pain

And if arthritis is present, the injury could be even more painful. Silver Cross Hospital in conjunction with Hinsdale Orthopaedics Group is offering a lecture on the Subchondroplasty™ procedure that will educate area residents on bone marrow lesions, their link to knee pain, and a new innovative treatment for these bone defects.
