St. John to host Dr. Deryk Jones, New Orleans Saints team physician in cartilage restoration event
St. John Medical Center will host Dr. Deryk Jones, New Orleans Saints team physician/and orthopedist, for a free public event discussing cartilage restoration on Tuesday, April 20.
Jones, along with Dr. Ronald G. Hood of Tulsa Bone and Joint Associates, will discuss how cartilage restoration can provide a more progressive solution for joint injuries in younger patients. The procedure regenerates and replaces cartilage before more advanced degeneration occurs and may also prevent the onset or progression of arthritis in some cases.
