LCMH orthopedic surgeon to speak at free seminar on Thursday, October 6th.
In today’s world, we are able to customize many aspects of our lives. We customize the cars we drive, moms spend time customizing their child’s backpack, our shoes can be custom-fit, and the list goes on. Why not extend this same luxury to our healthcare?
The Bone and Joint Specialists at Little Company of Mary Hospital (LCMH) offer a total knee-replacement procedure that is “customized” for each patient. Using the Depuy Tru-Match Personalized Solutions for Knee Replacement, the knee implants and the cutting guides used in the surgical procedure can be “created” specifically for each patient.
Total knee replacement surgery is commonly indicated for severe osteoarthritis of the knee. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of knee arthritis in which the joint cartilage gradually wears away. The Tru-Match technology that is offered at Little Company of Mary Hospital enables total knee replacement candidates to get back to their everyday activities with a new joint that is completely tailored to each individual.
“TruMatch plays an important part of the surgery we perform because the more closely approximate the knee is in its natural, pre-arthritic state when performing a knee replacement, the better the patient outcome,” said Khalid Yousuf, M.D., fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon at LCMH. “This technology can provide better knee alignment, improved recovery times, better mobility and increased range of motion.”
On Thursday, October 6, 2016, at 6:00 p.m., Dr. Yousuf, in collaboration with DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction, will be hosting a seminar at the Beverly Arts Center (2407 W. 111th Street, Chicago) to talk about this customized knee replacement surgery. The event, titled Today’s Solutions for Your Knee Pain, is free and open to the community. To reserve your spot, call 800-256-1146 or visit www.events.jointreplacement.com.
