Article

The September Med School Café lecture will feature Dr. Albert Pearsall, professor of orthopaedics and director of sports medicine at the USA College of Medicine.

His lecture, titled “Cadaver Cartilage Transplantation,” will take place Sept. 19, 2012, at the Via! Health, Fitness & Enrichment Center in Mobile. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m., and the presentation begins at noon.

Dr. Pearsall will lecture on meniscal transplant surgery, a procedure that transplants a cadaver meniscus from a tissue bank into patients who have had their meniscus removed. This procedure helps alleviate pain and prevent arthritis. He will also provide general information on arthritis and the various treatment options available for this disabling problem.

Dr. Pearsall earned his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio, completed orthopaedic surgery residency training at University of Chicago Hospitals, and a sports medicine fellowship at Duke University.

The Via! Health, Fitness & Enrichment Center is located at 1717 Dauphin St. in Mobile.

The Med School Café lecture and lunch are provided free of charge, but reservations are required.
For more information or to make reservations, please call Kim Partridge at (251) 460-7770 or e-mail kepartridge@usouthal.edu.

Med School Café is a free community lecture series sponsored by the USA Physicians Group. Each month, faculty from the USA College of Medicine share their expertise on a specific medical condition, providing insight on the latest treatment available.
