St. Helena, CA (PRWEB) August 04, 2011
A recent St. Helena Hospital Coon Joint Replacement Institute seminar, held on July 25, 2011, in Redding, CA, drew an audience of 230 individuals interested in minimally invasive hip, knee and joint replacement surgery offered by the renowned center, which serves Napa Valley and the San Francisco Bay area region.
“There was standing room only”, said Joshua Cowan, marketing vice president. “Many were happy former patients, others were prospective patients who had heard of Dr. Coon, and still others were clients who had one surgery with him, and wanted to come back to him for their second surgery.”
Dr. Coon specializes in minimally invasive robotic assisted partial knee and total knee replacement surgery. With his skilled hands and the precision of the robotic guidance system, patients may be up and on their feet the same day.
“The seminar received an overwhelming response, and everyone told us they enjoyed the professional and highly informative presentation,” says Joshua Cowan. “Many attendees were looking forward to visiting the Napa Valley for their surgery. The doctors are the leaders in this type of surgery, and the attendees are willing to travel a short distance to have their surgery performed by the best in the field”.
Dr. Coon holds the patent for the Quadsparing™ technique, and is one of two surgeons who co-designed the MAKO knee implants. He has performed over 7,000 joint replacements, and trains fellow surgeons around the world in this precision surgery.
The Coon Joint Replacement Institute performed more than 900 joint replacements in 2010. The institute was recently ranked second in the world for robotic joint replacement volume.
The Center performs surgery at St. Helena Hospital, Napa Valley. After surgery, patients are typically up and walking the same day. Clients are then able to return home within a few days. There is a six week follow-up appointment, but patients can choose to have their physical therapy in their own location.
The seminar was also attended by board certified orthopedic surgeons and Center partners Adam Freedhand,M.D. and John Velyvis, MD.
