Learn solutions for elbow pain

Susan Moen, MD, Orthopaedic Surgeon/Specialist

The body’s elbow enables hugging a family member, swinging a golf club, or lifting all kinds of items for daily living.  Because it’s not a simple joint, elbow injuries or medical conditions may have complex treatment solutions.

Riverwood Healthcare Center will host a seminar called “Solutions for Elbow Pain” at the Aitkin hospital in conference room C/ D on Mon., April 8, 6 to 7 p.m.

Hear from Dr. Susan Moen, orthopaedic surgeon who is fellowship trained in hand/wrist/elbow conditions. She practices with the Minnesota Center for Orthopaedics (MCO) at Riverwood Healthcare Center in Aitkin and Cuyuna Regional Medical Center in Crosby.

Terri Peterson, OTR, CHT, CLT

Dr. Moen’s co-presenter, Terri Peterson, is a certified hand occupational therapist at Riverwood. She works closely with Dr. Moen on care plans for patients.

Together, they will discuss treatment solutions for Tennis elbow, Golfers elbow, Cubital tunnel, bicep tendon rupture, and arthritis.

The program will include a light meal at no charge.  Registration is required. Call Riverwood’s events line at (218) 927-5188 or email healthyliving@riverwoodhealthcare.org
