ST. JOSEPH MERCY PORT HURON HOSTS INNOVATIVE ROBOTIC KNEE SURGERY SEMINAR FEATURING GERALD JERRY, MD

Minimally invasive robotic arm procedure treats early to mid-stage osteoarthritis, and can result in a more rapid recovery than traditional total knee replacement surgery.

Port Huron, Mi…St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron will host a FREE seminar to the public on Thursday, March 24, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., in New Baltimore exploring the advanced benefits of a new minimally invasive knee resurfacing procedure now offered exclusively at St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron. Gerald Jerry, MD, will provide the medical presentation and free hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be served.

St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron is the first hospital in region, and only the second in the state of Michigan, to perform MAKOplasty®, a new, minimally invasive robotic partial knee resurfacing procedure used to treat early to mid-stage osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. MAKOplasty®, powered by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic system, offers a more precise and consistent result for partial knee resurfacing and is less invasive than its total knee replacement alternative. Featured medical speaker, Gerald Jerry, MD, is a board certified orthopedic surgeon, specializing in the management of arthritis, as well as hip, shoulder, and knee replacement. Dr. Jerry has been in private practice in Port Huron for more than 20 years. Dr. Jerry is one of a total of 10 surgeons performing the new surgery at St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron.

For location information and to reserve your spot at this important free seminar; or for a referral to one of the qualified surgeons currently providing MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing at St. Joseph Mercy, please call toll free: 1-888-MERCYME (1-888-637-2963).
