Many people suffer from daily joint pain, especially in their knees and hips. As new and innovative treatment options emerge, sometimes it can be overwhelming to choose the solution that’s right for you. To help individuals make informed decisions, Northwest Community Hospital (NCH) is hosting a free educational seminar all about joint pain and joint replacement options.

NCH’s joint replacement seminar is Thursday, Sept. 27, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., in the NCH auditorium at 800 W. Central Road in Arlington Heights. Accessible parking is available in the Visitor Garage on the east side of the hospital.

Orthopedic surgeons Thomas Kim, M.D., and Eduard Sladek, M.D., as well as NCH experts in nursing and physical therapy, will share information on the latest treatments and therapies for joint pain, including joint replacement. The doctors will explain total knee, total hip and the new MAKOplasty® procedures.

Before and after the 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 Light appetizers will be served at the seminar.
