As a surgeon, I feel it’s important to reach out to the community and provide people with the latest information about my specialty so they are able to make better and more informed decisions when dealing with hip and knee pain.
In April, I will participate in two informative seminars.
Hope for Aching Knees and Hips, Dinner with the Doctor
On Wednesday, April 4, at 4 p.m., I will host, Dinner with the Doctor, a free, hour-long informational session, which is specifically tailored to give hope to those with aching knees and hips. As head of the Leone Center for Orthopedic Care at Holy Cross Hospital, I want people to know that there are treatment options available that can help them get back to active lives.
During this talk I will explain:
- The latest surgical techniques and treatment options for knees and hips
- How to choose the most beneficial treatment option
- How to prepare prior to surgery
- What you need to know during your hospital stay
- Post-operative care
Please invite your friends and family and join me on Wednesday, April 4 at 4 p.m., at the Sister Innocent Conference Center at Holy Cross Hospital, 4725 N. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. Reservations are required and complimentary valet parking will be provided. For reservations please call 954-489-4575.
Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Replacement, C.U.R.E. Symposium
On Saturday, April 6, I will participate in C.U.R.E.TM (Cutting-edge Understanding of Research & Education), South Florida’s second medical & bioscience symposium. I will be one of 36 of South Florida’s most distinguished physicians and scientists, presenting the latest information on a variety of medical advances.
During this seminar, I will discuss the dynamics and benefits of robotic assisted partial knee surgery. During this type of surgery, a robot not only acts as an extension of a surgeon’s eyes and hands, but the robotics help surgeons operate more effectively through a smaller incision. When used for the right indications, the benefits of robotic-assisted surgery include less scarring, destruction of soft tissue and blood loss, as well as a shorter hospital stay and more speedy recovery.
The C.U.R.E Symposium will be held be held on Saturday, April 6, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Marriott Hotel at Boca Center, 5150 Town Center Circle. The cost for the symposium, lectures and exhibits is $10 per person. The cost for the symposium, lectures, exhibits and the VIP luncheon is $50 per person. Space is limited.
