AKMC Orthopaedic Surgeon to Discuss Joint Replacement Options

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

will host Michael Miller, MD for a presentation entitled “Ask the Doctor About Arthritis and Total Joint Replacements” on Thursday, April 7, at 6 p.m. in the Charles W. Young Conference Center at the hospital in Harrison.

Joint replacement is the process of removing one’s entire joint and replacing it with a metal prosthesis (artificial joint). Understanding the options, pros and cons is the first step in the decision to choose surgery. Joint replacements often provide a much-needed relief from pain.

Dr. Miller is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in joint replacement. He practices with Greater Pittsburgh Orthopaedics, Brackenridge and is on staff at AKMC.

PriorityCare is a free membership program offered by AKMC to all adults age 55 or older. Please call 724-226-7339 to register, space is limited.
