Orthopedic Surgeons to Hold Two Community Events in January
On December 11, Middlesex Health kicked off its Orthopedic Speakers Series with a special presentation by Dr. Robert Geist.
The presentation was held at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown. Two more community events are scheduled for January and will feature other members of Middlesex’s talented orthopedic surgery team.
Dr. Geist is both an orthopedic surgeon and president of Middlesex Health’s medical staff, and he spoke about the use of robots during both partial and full knee replacement surgeries. Middlesex recently began using new technology called the NAVIO™ Surgical System. NAVIO is a robotic tool that allows Middlesex orthopedic surgeons to place components of your knee with greater precision, and it improves outcomes.
On January 9, Dr. Sean O’Donnell will speak about carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome and cervical nerve compression at the Middlesex Health Shoreline Medical Center, 250 Flat Rock Place in Westbrook. To register, call 860-358-8856.
On January 28, Dr. Martin White will speak about endoscopic carpal tunnel relief at the Acton Public Library, 60 Old Boston Post Road in Old Saybrook. To register for this event, call 860-358-6030.
These community education events are open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
