We often attribute aches and pains to simply getting older. But here’s the truth: Life shouldn’t be painful no matter what age you are.
As part of its dedication to making a difference in the lives of its patients and communities, St. Luke’s Medical Center, along with Hedley Orthopaedic Institute and Arizona Institute of Footcare Physicians, members of IASIS Healthcare, is offering the general public a free, interactive joint health seminar from 9 a.m. to noon March 4 at The Wigwam, 300 E. Wigwam Blvd., Litchfield Park..
IASIS Healthcare is the official healthcare partner of the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury.
Attendees will hear from physicians from Hedley Orthopaedic Institute and the Arizona Institute of Footcare Physicians about all aspects of hip, shoulder, knee and foot health.
Also available for demonstration is the NAVIO robot, which will showcase an innovative new surgical system for partial knee replacement, along with another demonstration available by MAKOplasty, a minimally invasive treatment option for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis.
Seminar sessions will share different approaches to keeping joints healthy, the latest on arthritis and options for treatment, including joint replacement procedures, robotic innovations, regenerative medicine and more. The event closes with a physician panel, giving attendees the opportunity to ask questions about joint health.
As a special treat, attendees will be welcomed by the Phoenix Suns Gorilla and cheerleaders, before enjoying a free FootMaxx Gait Analysis and breakfast. Registration is encouraged as space is limited; call 877-351-9355, or visit stlukesmedcenter.com.
