Doctors to discuss new approach to hip surgery at French Hospital

In case you missed French Hospital's lecture on its new technologically advanced approach to hip surgery, another one is being held next week.

The hospital now has a specially designed table that allows surgeons to perform Anterior Hip Replacement, in which the surgeon reaches and replaces the hip joint from the front of the hip, as opposed to the side or back of the hip.

For the patient, it means less pain, faster recovery time and better mobility.

The free lecture will be in the hospital's auditorium, Tuesday June 1, from 5:30 p.m. -7:30 p.m.

Dinner is included.

Call 542-6498 to reserve your seat.
