Educating PGA Fans on Joint Replacement Surgery
Recently, Stryker, one of the world’s leading medical technology companies, made its final stop of the 2018 PGA Tour season at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship in Phoenix, Arizona. Integrated Orthopedics’ Dr. Brian Gruber spent the day educating golf fans on overall joint health, knee & shoulder replacements, as well as potential treatment options including Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery, which Dr. Gruber recently started performing for his patients.
Dr. Gruber volunteer his time at The Mobility Zone® — the perfect destination at the tournament for anyone who had questions about joint health or joint replacement. The Mobility Zone® featured the Accuracy Challenge to teach fans the basics of joint replacement surgery. The Accuracy Challenge is a life size model, named Art H. Ritis, where fans can replace his replica arthritic bones with Stryker’s hip and knee implants. “I always find it very rewarding to educate my patients and potential patients about the latest technology on joint replacement. It’s very rewarding as a physician,” said Dr. Gruber. “PGA fans were very excited to learn about the Stryker’s Mako Technology that I am currently using for my patients. There are many options out there, this is just one of the many I perform.”
