The Arthritis Foundation, Pacific Region, has named Steven Sampson, D.O. the Orthopaedic Honoree for the Greater Los Angeles “Walk to Cure Arthritis”, which takes place on Saturday, May 30 at Exposition Park, South Lawn, 700 Exposition Park Drive, Los Angeles.

Founder of the Orthohealing Center, Santa Monica, Dr. Sampson is an internationally recognized expert in non-surgical orthopedics and regenerative medicine. 

He graduated from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency as Chief Resident, at Saint Vincent Medical Center of Manhattan in New York. Dr. Sampson is Diplomate of the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Dr. Sampson founded the Orthohealing Center, a comprehensive state of the art facility specializing solely on non-surgical orthopedics and sports medicine. He frequently treats professional and Olympic athletes from around the world. He is a clinical instructor of medicine at David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and is on the staff at St. John’s Health Center of Santa Monica. 

Dr. Sampson created the Orthobiologic Institute and chairs and moderates a world-class annual regenerative medicine symposium featuring experts in tendon and cartilage disease. He is a frequent resource for the media and has appeared on ABC 7, ESPN, “The Doctors”, and CBS Early Show.

The public is invited to the Arthritis Foundation’s signature, national fundraising event to fight arthritis, the nation’s leading cause of disability. Participants can choose a one-mile or three-mile non-competitive course.

Thousands of children and adults, along with their family and friends, will enjoy a day of fun and fitness while raising funds for a cure for arthritis. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m.; the Walk will begin at 9 a.m. Additional details are available on the website: www.lawalktocurearthritis.org.

Arthritis is a crippling disease that affects more than 50 million adults and 300,000 children in the nation. In Los Angeles, there are 1.2 million adults and 42,000 children suffering from one of 150 different forms of arthritis.

The annual “Walk To Cure Arthritis” brings together thousands of children and adults suffering from Arthritis, as well as members of the residential and business communities. 

Many local businesses form teams, sporting their company logos on hats or shirts. Families form teams and wear colorful shirts in honor or memory of a child or adult in their family who had or has arthritis. Children of all ages, walking or in strollers, are welcome. Pet owners are encouraged to bring their dogs on leashes. There will be live entertainment, a Kids Zone, activities and refreshments before and following the Walk.
