From St. Joseph's Hospital and Marshfield Clinic in Marshfield, WI

Chronic hip pain can often become debilitating, restricting people from their ability to enjoy normal, everyday activities. For years, when anti-inflammatory, pain relieving medications no longer provided relief, the only option was a total hip replacement.

Chronic hip pain can often become debilitating, restricting people from their ability to enjoy normal, everyday activities. For years, when anti-inflammatory, pain relieving medications no longer provided relief, the only option was a total hip replacement.

Two surgical procedures are now being performed by Marshfield Clinic physicians at Saint Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield, Wis., offering significant alternatives for younger, more active patients.

Hip resurfacing is an early intervention for hip replacement in which the ball of the hip is resurfaced rather than replaced, resulting in less bone removal. The other surgical procedure that is offered is hip impingement surgery. This is done in the very early stages of osteoarthritis, with the intent to treat hip discomfort, preserving the existing natural hip joint and delaying or avoiding hip replacement surgery.

Both procedures will be featured in the 11th webcast sponsored by Saint Joseph's Hospital and Marshfield Clinic. The webcast will air from 5-6 p.m. on Thursday, June 18. During the webcast, Marshfield Clinic physicians on staff at Saint Joseph's Hospital will discuss the procedures. The program will feature pre-taped procedures and a real-time panel discussion and analysis.

The webcast also will include discussion of a lumbar plexus anesthesia, which is used for orthopaedic post-operative pain management.

The moderator will be Orthopaedic Surgeon Stig Jacobsen, MD. Panel members will include Anesthesiologist James Conterato, MD; Radiologist Charles Kenney, MD; and Orthopaedic Surgeon David Simenstad, MD.

Saint Joseph's Hospital, a member of Ministry Health Care, is a 500-plus bed tertiary care teaching institution; one of the largest rural referral medical centers and one of only three Children's Hospitals in Wisconsin, providing care to an ever-increasing area in Wisconsin and Michigan.

The Marshfield Clinic system provides patient care, research and education with 45 locations in northern, central and western Wisconsin, making it one of the largest comprehensive medical systems in the United States.
