Gerald Jerry, MDPort Huron, Mi...St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron will hold a FREE public information seminar on Thursday, January 24, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., in Clinton Township, MI exploring the advanced benefits of minimally invasive partial knee resurfacing and total hip replacement procedures offered exclusively at St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron.

St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron (SJMPH) is the first hospital in the Southeast Michigan 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). SJMPH and its experienced team of clinical care staff have performed hundreds of the procedures since the program began in July 2010.

MAKOplasty®, powered by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic system, provides the Blue Water area's only extensive surgeon assisted robotic surgery programs dedicated to orthopedics. 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 number of surgeons performing the robotic partial knee resurfacing, and the new robotic total hip surgery at St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron.
