From severe injuries to arthritis, shoulder replacement surgery can be used to treat a variety of conditions. For some patients, less invasive treatments provide relief but for others, shoulder replacement surgery provides the best path to a healthy, pain-free life.
The latest developments in shoulder replacement surgery will be the focus of a free seminar at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 14, in Ventura. Titled “Is Shoulder Replacement Right for You?” the seminar is hosted by Community Memorial Health System as part of its 2019 Speaker Series. At the seminar, guest speaker Dr. Stephan Sweet will discuss advances in shoulder replacement surgery and the types of patients most likely to benefit from surgery.
Dr. Sweet is a member of the Community Memorial Hospital medical staff and specializes in orthopedic surgery. He received his medical degree from Georgetown University, completed his orthopedic surgery residency at USC, and completed a fellowship at UCLA in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery. Dr. Sweet is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
The Nov. 14 seminar will begin at 6 p.m. at the Museum of Ventura County, 100 E. Main Street. Registration is free but reservations are required. For reservations, visit www.cmhshealth.org/rsvp or call Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006.
