SUNY Upstate to hold Paget’s disease patient meeting April 28
SUNY Upstate Medical University physicians will offer the latest information on Paget’s disease Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Institute for Human Performance, 505 Irving Ave, Syracuse.
Paget’s disease is a chronic disorder that typically results in enlarged and deformed bones resulting in bone pain, arthritis, deformities and fractures. Paget’s disease may be caused by a “slow virus” infection, present for many years before symptoms appear. There is also a hereditary factor since the disease may appear in more than one family member.
The meeting will feature presentations by:
- Arnold Moses, M.D., director of Upstate’s metabolic bone disease center, who will discuss causes and diagnoses;
- George Ang, M.D., assistant professor of medicine, who will discuss medical therapy and;
- Timothy Damron, M.D., associate professor of orthopedic surgery, who will discuss orthopedic aspects of the disease.
The meeting is free and open to the public but pre-registration is required. To register call 315-464-9000. Parking is available behind the institute. The meeting is presented by the Paget Foundation and SUNY Upstate Medical University.
