Maury Regional offers free seminar on knee replacement

10.14.2016

COLUMBIA, Tenn. — More than 690,000 knee replacements are conducted annually to help ease the pain that results from damaged joints that limit mobility and impact quality of life. Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) will offer a free seminar about knee replacement on Thursday, November 10 (revised date), at 6 p.m. in the medical center’s Auxiliary Conference Room.

J. Fredrick Wade, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon on the medical staff who has conducted more than 5,000 knee replacements during his career, will be the featured speaker. He will address chronic knee pain, the conditions that lead to total knee replacement and the different types of knee implants available today.

“The overwhelming majority of my patients wish that they had chosen knee replacement sooner,” said Dr. Wade. “The improved mobility and quality of life can be remarkable for those who are diligent with post-surgical physical therapy and exercise. In addition, with advancements in implant technology, we are finding that artificial joints are more durable than ever before and can be tailored to the anatomy of the patient.”

The orthopedic surgeons and staff at MRMC have a commitment to quality that has resulted in the medical center being recognized as #1 in Tennessee for medical excellence in joint replacement for 2017 by CareChex®—an information service of Quantros, Inc. In addition, the medical center has Joint Commission certification for knee and hip replacement and has been designated as a Blue Distinction Center by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.

Light refreshments will be served. To register, call 931.840.4446 or email RSVP@MauryRegional.com.
