Erik N. Zeegen, M. D.
Brentwood’s Erik N. Zeegen, M.D., one of Southern California’s leading joint replacement surgeons, has been named the 2012 Medical Honoree for the Arthritis Walk at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Dr. Zeegen’s practice is focused on hip and knee replacement surgery and offers the latest medical technologies, including lesser invasive techniques. People suffering from various forms of arthritis, which affects the joints, often require hip and knee replacement surgery.

With medical practices at the Valley Hip & Knee Institute in Tarzana and the Hip and Pelvis Institute at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, Dr. Zeegen offers his patients hip and knee pain management, in addition to surgery.

More than 50 million Americans, one in five adults, and 42,000 children, suffer daily from some form of arthritis and chronic joint pain. The Arthritis Walk is the Arthritis Foundation’s signature event that takes place in communities nationwide to raise funds and awareness to fight arthritis, the nation’s number one cause of disability.

Serving as Medical Honoree at the Arthritis Walk at Magic Mountain, Dr. Zeegen will join thousands of children and adults suffering from Arthritis, as well as members of the residential and business communities. There will be a Festival Zone, Kids Zone, live entertainment and refreshments. Many local businesses form teams and walk together, sporting their company logos on hats or shirts. Children of all ages, walking or in strollers, and friendly dogs are welcome.

Celebrities who will lend their support to the Walk are Dayanara Torres, actress and model; and, Kelli Martin, actress, who has performed in “Life Goes On†and “ER†.

For more information about the Magic Mountain Arthritis Walk and registration details, call the local Office: (818) 935-4502.
