Dr. Tyler Welch of Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine is scheduled to present a lecture on Thursday, January 19th titled Recent Advances in the Treatment of Cartilage Injuries and Early Arthritis: The Future is Here. Open to the general public, the lecture will take place from 6:30-8PM at the Portsmouth Regional Hospital – Hospital Classroom, located on Borthwick Avenue.
Topics of discussion will include: the role of cartilage in joint function, common symptoms in patients with cartilage injuries, the history of cartilage surgery, and the ways in which treatment options have evolved over the last ten to fifteen years in orthopedic medicine. Dr. Welch will also share various cartilage treatment techniques that he currently practices at the Cartilage Center at Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, as well as how location, size, and extent of a cartilage injury’s damage can dictate the appropriate treatment options for a patient.
Dr. Welch is a Board-Certified physician at Atlantic Orthopaedics who specializes in cartilage restoration, sports medicine, joint replacement, and arthroscopic surgery of the hip, knee and shoulder. He is the lead doctor of the clinic’s new Cartilage Center, a place for patients experiencing joint pain and early arthritis. Using cutting-edge treatments in cartilage restoration, Dr. Welch and his team are able to help patients resolve hip, elbow, knee, shoulder and other joint pain, while avoiding more costly and invasive replacement procedures down the road.
