North Broward Medical Center to Educate Community on Anterior Hip Replacement
What: Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Manish Gupta will host an educational, community lecture on the anterior approach to hip replacement surgery using the specially designed hana® table. This innovative, new procedure allows surgeons to replace the hip without cutting any muscles, resulting in less pain, less scarring and a faster recovery.
When: Wednesday, June 16, 2010
**Space is limited. Please call the Broward Health Line at 954-759-7400 to reserve your seat.
Where: North Broward Medical Center
201 E. Sample Road
Deerfield Beach, FL
Why: Approximately 375,000 Americans undergo hip replacement surgery each year. This number is expected to almost double over the next 25 years due in part to the aging population.
