Upcoming Virtual Health Talks
Help Your Spine Feel Fine
Tuesday, January 26th at Noon
Presented by Jonathan E. Belding, MD, Orthopaedics at MetroHealth.
Ask anyone who has had back pain, weakness or balance issues -- it can be debilitating. But it doesn’t need to be. MetroHealth’s world-class Spine Center has helped thousands of patients feel better.
Join us for a free virtual health talk with Dr. Jonathan E. Belding, an orthopaedic spine surgeon with MetroHealth’s Spine Center. He will explain the effects of aging on the spine, different spine conditions and discuss options to help you get relief, including options without surgery and without medication – and he’ll answer your questions.
Attendees can submit questions ahead of time to have answered during the discussion.
Space is limited and preregistration is required.
