Free Educational Seminars & Dinners: Explore Life Without Knee Pain

MAKOplasty: Transforming Treatment Options

Why: Glendale Adventist board-certified doctors are educating patients about the causes of knee pain and the latest treatment options.

Relief from knee pain may be closer than you think. Glendale Adventist Medical Center invites our communities to attend a free seminar to get expert advice from renowned orthopedic doctors and see how MAKOplasty works.

WHY: MAKOplasty® is a treatment alternative to total knee arthroplasty (TKA) or manual partial knee resurfacing. MAKOplasty® partial knee replacement is a procedure for adults living with early to mid-stage non-inflammatory arthritis in either the medial, patellofemoral or lateral compartments of the knee. It can also be performed as a bicompartmental procedure on both the medial and patellofemoral portions of the knee.

When: Wednesday, September 12, 2012 or Thursday, October 25, 2012

Time: 6 to 8 PM

Where: Wednesday, Sept. 12 at La Canada Flintridge Country Club, 5500 Godbey Dr., La Canada Flintridge, CA

or Thursday, Oct. 25 at Angeles National Golf Club, 9401 Foothill Blvd., Sunland, CA

Participants will also be treated to dinner. For more information or to register, visit http://www.glendaleadventist.com/makoplasty or call (855) 360-GAMC (4262).
