Many people suffer from daily joint pain, especially in their knees and hips. If you’re one of those people, it’s time to learn about your options from expert orthopedic physicians who understand your condition.
Northwest Community Hospital (NCH) is holding a free joint replacement seminar from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6, in the NCH auditorium at 800 W. Central Road in Arlington Heights. Attendees should park in the Visitor Garage on the east side of the hospital, and enter the building through the East Entrance.
Orthopedic surgeons James Hill, M.D., and Terry Younger, M.D., as well as experts in nursing and therapy, will share information on the latest treatments and therapies for joint pain, including joint replacement. The doctors will explain total knee, total hip, anterior hip and the new MAKOplasty® procedures.
Before and after the two-hour seminar, attendees can meet the RIO® robot used in MAKOplasty® surgeries for people with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee. The surgeon-controlled robotic arm system offers a minimally invasive approach to resurfacing the arthritic portion of the knee, saving as much of the patient’s original knee as possible. This state-of-the-art surgery delivers the potential for a more rapid recovery, shorter hospital stay and natural-feeling knee. Most patients return to their daily activities in two to three weeks.
Come learn why Northwest Community Hospital is on the leading edge of joint replacement. Registration is required by calling HealthConnection at 847.618.4YOU (4968) or visiting the hospital online at www.nch.org/jointpain. Light refreshments will be served at the seminar.
