Craig Bennett, MD Speaker at Upcoming Lecture

October 05, 2011

Orthopedic Surgeon, Craig Bennett, M.D. is the featured speaker for an upcoming lecture on “Treatment for Acute Thoracic and Lumbar Fractures.”

Hudson, FL - Compression fracture of the vertebral body is common, especially in older adults. Vertebral compression fractures usually are caused by osteoporosis, and range from mild to severe. More severe fractures can cause significant pain, leading to inability to perform activities of daily living.  There are several ways these deformities can develop and be treated. Dr. Bennett will be discussing how to prevent compression fractures by diagnosing and treating predisposing factors, identifying high-risk patients, and educating patients and the public about measures to prevent falls and current treatments available.

This presentation is sponsored by Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point and will take place at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, Conference Center, 14000 Fivay Road, in Hudson, on Wednesday, October 19 at 3:00PM. 

This event is free to the public. Refreshments will be served. Due to limited seating, reservations are required, and can be made by calling (727) 869-5498 or 1-888-741-5119.
