Highline doctor picked for study

Approximately 43 million Americans suffer from arthritis and that number is expected to climb higher as our population ages.

By 2020, it is estimated that 60 million people will have arthritis due to the increased number of people over 65 years of age.

Dr. Barry Bockow, a Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine and a Burien Rheumatologist, has been selected to participate in a nationwide study for Osteoarthritis of the hip.

He is one of the few MD’s selected in the entire West Coast to provide this injectable compound free to patients.

All medical visits, imaging studies and evaluations will be covered by the study and are free to the patient.

For more information or an appointment, call Dr. Bockow at (206) 246-7880.
