POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Vassar Brothers Medial Center will host a free seminar on Monday, Oct. 19, about robotic surgery for people who don’t want to live with the pain or other limitations with their knees and hips.

The seminar will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m.  in the Vassar Ambulatory Surgery Center at Vassar Brothers Medical Center, 4th Floor, 21 Reade Place, Poughkeepsie.

Dr. David Stamer of Mount Kisco Medical Group and a member of the medical staff of Vassar Brothers Medical Center will give the presentation.

MAKOplasty Hip Replacement and Knee Resurfacing are performed using the RIO system, a highly advanced, surgeon-controlled robotic arm system that offers a new level of precision to restore mobility. MAKOplasty is changing the face of orthopedic surgery with smaller incisions and quicker recovery times.

Vassar Brothers Medical Center and its sister hospital, Putnam Hospital Center in Carmel, are the only hospitals in the Hudson Valley and the Capital District to offer MAKOplasty.

“Traditional total knee replacement included a hospital stay and intense rehabilitation,” Stamer said. “Following MAKOplasty®, patients can go home in one day instead of three. That’s very important for people with busy lives.”

For reservations or for more information, call 845-483-6088.
