Portsmouth, NH – January 20, 2010 – On Thursday, January 20th, Dr. Matt Quitkin presented to an audience of Seacoast area occupational and hand therapists at Access Sports Medicine in Portsmouth. The topic of the presentation was CMC arthritis, treatments, CMC arthroplasty and pre-op and post-op care. Dr. Quitkin is one of the directors of the Hand Center at Access Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics and his lecture was the first of a bi-monthly series to the community of Seacoast area therapists. The goal of the lecture series is to give the therapists an opportunity to learn more about common hand conditions, treatment protocols and to open up the line of communication for questions or discussions about more complicated cases.

The next lecture is scheduled for March 17th in Portsmouth and Dr. Roderick J. Bruno will be discussing Lateral Epicondylitis or “tennis elbow.”
