Join top specialists Dr. Brent Wiersema and Dr. Joseph McGraw of Great Lakes Orthopaedic Center (GLOC) as they present “Advances in Hip Care,” a FREE seminar being held on Monday, March 10, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. at the GLOC offices, located at 4045 West Royal Drive, Traverse City, Michigan, 49684.
Your hips are among the most important joints in your body. You need them for sitting down, standing up and taking simple steps. If they’re not working properly, it can mean pain, discomfort and even immobility. Total hip replacement surgery has come a long way over the last several years. Hospitalization has been reduced significantly and is generally limited to an overnight stay, allowing patients to more quickly return to their active lives.
This presentation will cover advancements in total hip replacement surgery as well as highlight options for implants, pain management and blood clot management. Dr. Wiersema and Dr. McGraw will also discuss the overall surgical approach. Light refreshments will be served.
