MOORESVILLE, N.C. (November 6, 2012) – Lake Norman Regional Medical Center (LNRMC) will be holding its monthly MAKOplasty seminars that focus on assisting individuals with knee concerns. The seminars are themed, Is MAKOplasty Right for You? Lake Norman Regional will hold seminars at two separate locations, in Mooresville and Statesville.
The first seminar will be held in Statesville at the Statesville Civic Center, located at 301 S. Center Street, on November 6 from 6 - 7 p.m. in Room E.
The second seminar will be held in Mooresville at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center, located at 171 Fairview Road, on November 13 from 6 - 7 p.m. in Community Rooms A and B.
LNRMC is the only hospital in the area that offers MAKOplasty, a minimally invasive procedure on the knee that treats early to mid-stage osteoarthritis. Orthopedic surgeons, David Hillsgrove, M.D. and James McDonald, M.D., will be speaking at the seminars about the procedure which uses MAKOplasty robotic-assisted technology to resurface the affected area of the knee while leaving healthy bone and tissue intact. MAKOplasty can provide quicker rehabilitation and more natural motion in the knee post-surgery compared to a total knee replacement.
The seminars are free, however registration is required. For more information regarding this month’s seminar, or to reserve your seat, please contact the Orthopedic Nurse Navigator at (704) 660-4164.
