Saint Helena, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2011
A recent St. Helena Hospital Coon Joint Replacement Institute (CJRI) seminar, held on March 14, 2011, in Palm Springs, Ca, drew an audience of over 570 individuals interested in knee and hip replacement offered by CJRI, which is based in the Napa Valley, with offices in San Francisco’s Marina District.
Dr. John Velyvis, formally of the Eisenhower Center in Palm Springs, is a partner in the Institute. Prior to the seminar, Dr. Velyvis hosted a reception for his former patients. “People stood in line for more than an hour to speak with the greatly admired orthopedic surgeon”, noted Joshua Cowan, Vice President of Marketing at St. Helena Hospital. “The response of the community was overwhelming. Over 200 people turned out to shake his hand and thank him for improving their quality of life, helping then live younger, longer, without pain”.
Dr. Velyvis specializes in minimally invasive robotic assisted partial knee and hip replacement surgery. His experience and the precision of the robotic guidance system can have you up and on your feet the same day.
CJRI partners Drs. Thomas Coon, Adam Freedhand and John Velyvis were the featured speakers at the Palm Springs seminar, along with Gretchen Layman, Physician’s Assistant to the orthopedic team. Dr. Thomas Coon pioneered the minimally invasive technique, which may result in less infection and quicker recovery, and Dr. Freedhand was among the first to introduce direct anterior approach to hip replacement. The Coon Joint Replacement Institute performed more than 800 joint replacements in 2010, and was recently ranked second in the world for robotic joint replacement volume.
