Advances in Total Joint Replacement Webinar

BENNINGTON, VT—November 13, 2020—Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC) proudly presents Advances in Total Joint Replacement 4 – 5 p.m. Wednesday, December 9 over video conferencing software. It is free and open to the public. The event is appropriate for any person who experiences joint pain, along with members of their families. Visit https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_eujsCcdySJ-gkYMA2j7s3w  to register. 

“The joint replacements of today look entirely different than those that your parents may have had,” said Michaela Schneiderbauer, MD, medical director of Orthopedics at SVMC. “We are eager to share what is new so that patients have all of the information they need to make a decision about whether a joint replacement is right for them.”

An expert panel—including Orthopedic Surgeons Suk Namkoong, MD; Matthew Nofziger, MD; and Michaela Schneiderbauer, MD,  all of SVMC Orthopedics, and Michaelia St. Jacques, OT, of SVMC Outpatient Rehabilitation—will discuss who should consider a joint replacement and the recent advances that have made recovery from joint replacement surgery quicker than ever. Attendees will learn about the practice’s new Same-Day Joint Replacement program, anterior and posterior approaches, and the consultation-to-surgery timeline, which can be as short as 4 weeks.
