    Knee Pain in the Elderly

    Are you suffering from knee pain? If so, you are not alone. Knee pain is a common complaint in adults, but not as inevitable as age. In this talk, Dr Gurpal Singh will explain common causes of knee pain and when it might be advisable to see a doctor. Nowadays, several treatment options ranging from non-surgical to surgical options are available that can help relieve knee pain and get you back on your feet. Questions such as “What can I do to avoid surgery?” and “What to expect if I need surgery?” will be addressed in this talk.
