Date:9/15/2011

WARSAW, Ind., Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Motivated by her behind-the-scenes struggle with severe hip pain, Emmy®-nominated actress and bilateral hip replacement patient Jane Kaczmarek is joining forces with DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. (DePuy) to launch the Anatomy of Movement Experience, an educational program that demonstrates the disabling effects of osteoarthritis and encourages those suffering with severe knee or hip pain to start a conversation with a doctor about their treatment options.

At the Anatomy of Movement Experience, visitors can tour a 30-foot walk-through exhibit of the human leg, talk with healthcare professionals about severe hip and knee pain, take an osteoarthritis self assessment quiz and speak with patients about their experiences with total joint replacement.
