Thinking about joint replacement surgery?

This event is for you. Be there when David Kolessar, MD, chief of Adult Reconstruction for Geisinger’s Northeast Region, explains the benefits of Mako® robotic-arm-assisted surgery for knee and hip replacements. Learn how it makes surgery more precise and less invasive — so recovery is easier for you.

Dr. Kolessar is one of less than a dozen local surgeons certified to perform Mako robotic-arm-assisted surgery — and Geisinger is the area’s only provider.

If you’ve been thinking of hip or knee replacement, there’s no reason to leave NEPA for world-class care.

This event is free, but online registration is required.
