Knee Pain? Innovative Treatment with Robotic Partial Knee Replacement

Dr. Nauman AkhtarLeesburg, VA – (May 14, 2013) – As part of its free “Ask the Expert” lecture series, Inova Loudoun Hospital will host “Knee Pain? Innovative Treatment with Robotic Partial Knee Replacement” on Tuesday, May 21 at 6 – 7:30 p.m.

MAKOplasty® offers people with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee a less invasive treatment option than total knee replacement. It enables surgeons to precisely target only the diseased portion of the knee, without compromising the healthy bone and tissue surrounding it.

A regionally recognized leader, Inova Loudoun Hospital is ranked as a U.S. News & World Report Best Hospital in six adult specialties including orthopedics, and is one of very few
hospitals in the area who have made the investment to offer this new surgical approach.

The lecture will be held at the 1757 Golf Club, 45120 Waxpool Road, Dulles. Participation is free, but registration is requested.  Contact Ginny White at  vwhite@lmgdoctors.com to register.
