Arthritis is on the rise; currently, more than 52 million people suffer from it – that’s one in five – and 67 million are projected to be diagnosed with it by 2030 and 78 million by 2040, according to Centers for Disease Control statistics. Arthritis also knows no age; currently, nearly 300,000 children under age 18 suffer from it, a ratio of one in 250.
Dr. Mark Ciaglia, owner of Woodlands Center for Special Surgery, knows that early detection of arthritis can significantly lessen its impact on the patient. Which is why the center is hosting free hand x-rays to check for arthritis. From now through June 17, anyone who makes a reservation can come to the center located at 17450 St. Luke’s Way, Suite 390, in The Woodlands to receive a free digital x-ray exam on their hands. The procedure uses the latest technology that provides nearly instantaneous results.
Woodlands Center for Special Surgery provides a full range of procedures and services including minimally invasive carpal tunnel release, fracture care, joint reconstructions and all pediatric hand issues. Dr. Ciaglia also specializes in treating complex conditions including bone disorders, fractures, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
