Free Seminar to Teach About Breakthrough Knee, Hip Surgery
If you suffer from knee or hip pain, you may want to learn more about a new breakthrough procedure now available in Lafayette. An orthopedic surgeon from Lafayette General Medical Doctors is presenting a FREE educational seminar at St. Martin Hospital to discuss MAKOplasty®, a total hip and partial knee replacement procedure customized to individual patients.
The seminar, being presented by Orthopedic Surgeon Adam Kennedy, M.D., will be held Wednesday, Dec. 10 at 6 p.m. at the St. Martin Hospital Annex, 210 Champagne Blvd., in Breaux Bridge. He will be accepting questions from the audience. To RSVP, call (337) 289-8600.
The seminar will explain the advantages MAKOplasty provides by using 3-D and robotic arm technology, offering surgeons more accuracy, precision and control. The result for patients is less pain, less invasive surgery and shorter recovery time. Implants also last longer due to less wear, making partial replacement viable for people of younger ages, and fewer replacements necessary for elderly patients.
Refreshments will be served at the seminar.
