Fauquier Health Hosts Lectures on Joint Replacement and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

As part of an ongoing physician seminar series, Fauquier Hospital will present two lectures in September; one on joint replacement on September 16 at 6 p.m., and another on Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma on September 29 at 7 p.m. Both classes will be held in the Sycamore rooms at the hospital.

The lecture on joint replacement will be given by one of the Blue Ridge Orthopaedic group surgeons. This lecture will be particularly interesting to those considering a knee or hip replacement. The discussion will cover the entire process — from the initial physician’s consultation through postsurgical rehabilitation. Participants will also learn about nonsurgical alternatives and treatment options for arthritis.

The lecture about coping with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma will be given by oncologist Syed Salman Ali, M.D. Dr. Ali is new to Fauquier Hospital. His practice, Fauquier Health Hematology/Oncology, is located in the hospital and is the only one of its kind in Fauquier County.

These lectures are part of a year-round series of physician lectures that Fauquier Health offers to the public free of charge. Fauquier Health is committed to educating the public about issues that are important to their health. Other lecture topics include childbirth, breast cancer, chronic pain, etc.
