Knee pain affects people of all ages - check out a one-stop shop from knee experts

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has created a comprehensive, interactive site about KNEES! The new Save Your Knees Web Portal (www.saveyourknees.org) is full of multimedia information focused on knees: keeping knees healthy, exercise, common knee problems, injury prevention, treatments, including non-surgical and surgical options, and more.

Now patients, physicians and the public have a trusted source. The portal provides the most up-to-date knee information.

On the site you will find:

  • Question of the Week - multiple choice, true/false, polls. Each week a new question will be featured.
  • Healthy Knees at Any Age - click and drag the slider bar to select your age group. Links change to appropriate information for any age.
  • Fun Knee Facts - quick, interesting facts that change randomly.
  • Kids Korner - Meet the Boneses (a family shaped like bones!) and more for little learners.
  • eMotion Pictures - stories and artwork from artists suffering from knee pain.
  • Patient Stories - direct accounts from orthopaedic patients with knee problems.
  • Public Service Announcements - print, radio and television ads with a variety of important messages for any visitor.
  • Press Releases and Press Kits - see the latest news from the AAOS, both clinical and consumer related.

"The new web portal, saveyourknees.org, is a fantastic, all-inclusive, comprehensive repository of all things related to the health of your knees; from children to seniors. From injury prevention, to understanding a condition or injury, to researching treatment options, saveyourknees.org is a valuable resource," said Edward Toriello, M.D., spokesperson for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeon and knee replacement patient.

saveyourknees.org was made possible by a generous grant from Genzyme.
