Advanced robotic orthopedic surgery services available for both partial knee resurfacing and total hip replacement.

Port Huron, Mi…St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron will hold a FREE public information seminar on Tuesday, January 24, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., in Port Huron exploring the advanced benefits of minimally invasive partial knee resurfacing and total hip replacement procedures offered exclusively at St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron. Scott Heithoff, DO, of Orthopedic Associates, will provide the medical presentation. Free hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be served.

St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron is the first hospital in region, and the second in the state of Michigan to perform MAKOplasty®, a minimally invasive robotic partial knee resurfacing procedure used to treat early to mid-stage osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. St. Joseph Mercy is also the first hospital in the state of Michigan to launch MAKOplasty® robotic assisted total hip replacement surgery service, designed to treat patients with Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD).

MAKOplasty®, powered by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic system, provides the region's only extensive surgeon assisted robotic surgery programs. Featured medical speaker, Scott Heithoff DO, has been a part of the team at Orthopedic Associates since 2002.

Dr. Heithoff is one of a total of nine surgeons performing the robotic partial knee resurfacing, and one of four performing the new robotic total hip surgery at St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron.
