If knee or hip pain is keeping you from enjoying an active lifestyle, you may be a candidate for a total joint replacement. To learn more about the surgical options available, LewisGale Hospital Alleghany will host “Dinner with a Doc.” This free program will feature Orthopedic Surgeon James McCoig, M.D.
Dr. McCoig is board certified in orthopedic surgery and has more than 20 years of experience in the field. In addition to his expertise in total joint replacement, he also specializes in sports medicine. Dr. McCoig attended medical school and completed his residency at the University of Virginia.
The public is invited to attend “Dinner with a Doc” on Wednesday, Sept. 25 from 5 to 6 p.m. in the hospital dining room. Dr. McCoig will also offer a question and answer session following his presentation. Physical therapists and nurses will also be available to provide additional information about the surgery and recovery process.
