ST. JOSEPH MERCY HOSTS DINNER WITH THE DOCTOR, INNOVATIVE ROBOTIC KNEE SURGERY SEMINAR, FEATURING TODD MURPHY, MD

Minimally invasive robotic arm procedure treats early to mid-stage osteoarthritis, and can result in a more rapid recovery than traditional total knee replacement surgery.

Port Huron, Mi…St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron will hold a FREE dinner and public information seminar on Thursday, January 27, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., in Imlay City exploring the advanced benefits of a new minimally invasive knee resurfacing procedure now offered exclusively at St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron. Todd Murphy, MD, of Orthopedic Associates, PC, will provide the medical presentation. A complimentary buffet dinner will be served.

St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron is the first hospital in region, and only the second in the state of Michigan, to perform MAKOplasty®, a new, minimally invasive robotic partial knee resurfacing procedure used to treat early to mid-stage osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. MAKOplasty®, powered by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic system, offers a more precise and consistent result for partial knee resurfacing and is less invasive than its total knee replacement alternative. Featured medical speaker, Todd Murphy, MD, is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and replacement surgery. He received his doctor of medicine degree from Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, and completed his residency in orthopedic medicine at the Detroit Medicine Center. Dr. Murphy is one of a total of 10 surgeons performing the new surgery at St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron.

For location information and to reserve your spot at this important free seminar; or for a referral to one of the qualified surgeons currently providing MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing at St. Joseph Mercy, please call toll free: 1-888-MERCYME (1-888-637-2963).
