Events

We know you enjoy an active lifestyle living in sunny Arizona. An aching back or painful joints shouldn't keep you from whatever you love to do in life.

That's why Tucson Orthopaedic Institute is dedicated to providing health education on a variety of orthopaedic topics. At our free health lectures, a highly qualified orthopaedic sub-specialist will explain common conditions and treatment options, including minimally invasive and non-surgical procedures, in their area of expertise. Often members of our team attend local health education forums where we offer information, presentations, and/or screenings.

Check the events calendar below on a regular basis as new lectures and events are added frequently. (You can see all events per month, or search for a specific date.)

For more information on any of these topics, or if your organization is interested in scheduling a lecture with our physicians, please contact our Events & Community Relations department.
