BROOKINGS – Brookings Health System and Avera Medical Group Specialty Care will host a free seminar discussing joint replacement options on Tuesday, April 23,  starting at 6 p.m. in Brookings Hospital Conference Room A. 

Orthopedic surgeons Dr. Mark Mayer and Dr. Michael Holmoe will discuss hip and knee replacement options using Mako robotic-arm technology. They will discuss how joints wear over time and how joint replacement can restore function and reduce pain. 

In addition, attendees will learn more about Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery and how it helps surgeons accurately position a joint replacement using a personalized surgery plan customized to a patient’s hip or knee joint. The seminar will also include a demonstration of Mako technology.
