- April 04, 2019
Brookings Health System and Avera Medical Group Specialty Care will host a free seminar discussing joint replacement options on Tuesday, April 23 starting at 6 p.m. in Brookings Hospital Conference Room A.
Orthopedic Surgeons Dr. Mark Mayer and Dr. Michael Holmoe will discuss hip and knee replacement options using Mako robotic-arm technology. They will discuss how joints wear over time and how joint replacement can restore function and reduce pain.
In addition, attendees will learn more about Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery and how it helps surgeons accurately position a joint replacement using a personalized surgery plan customized to a patient’s hip or knee joint. The seminar will also include a demonstration of Mako technology.
Seating is limited. Attendees may register online at www.brookingshealth.org/JointEvent or by calling (605) 696-8028.
