Ortho Night Out was a night for those interested in learning more about our body’s pain referral patterns as well as in joint replacement to meet surgeons, see the replacement options and learn about the entire treatment process.
“As one of the surgeons at Heartland Orthopedic Specialists, it was a pleasure to be a part of an excellent evening of community education during the Ortho Night Out. As evidenced by the tremendous turnout, people in our region are quite interested in the available options for treatment of their hip, knee, and shoulder pain,” says Dr. Paul Dale. “I look forward to providing more of these informational seminars as our community requests them.”
Local radio personality Dennis Anhalt provided a very entertaining patient testimonial and a Q&A session on his experience with joint replacement. Over $400 worth of prizes were given away, and those in attendance were able to look at joint implants from the Zimmer Biomet bus.
