A free public presentation, titled “Solving Problems of the Foot and Ankle,” is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4, in DuVal Auditorium at the University of Arizona Medical Center – University Campus, 1501 N. Campbell Ave.

Treatment options for foot-and-ankle problems have expanded greatly over the past few years. Newer treatments that preserve motion and allow rapid return to activities will be discussed by keynote speaker Dr. L. Daniel Latt, an assistant professor and director of clinical research in the department of orthopaedic surgery at the UA College of Medicine.

Latt is an expert in the treatment of foot-and-ankle problems, including disorders of cartilage, ligaments and tendons, and the treatment of complex deformities of the lower extremity. He has a special interest in the treatment of ankle arthritis using total ankle replacement. His current research interests include the use of ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of tendon problems of the foot and ankle.

The lecture is part of the Living Healthy With Arthritis series of monthly talks presented by the University of Arizona Arthritis Center.

Seating is limited and prior registration is requested. For more information or to register, visit the UA Arthritis Center website www.arthritis.arizona.edu or call 626-5040 or email livinghealthy@arthritis.arizona.edu
