Regency House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Hartford Health Care At Home are sponsoring a free seminar on joint replacement at noon on Monday, Oct. 26 at the Wallingford Senior Center. The event, free and open to the public, features Dr. Leonard Kolstad, a recognized leader in orthopedic surgery.

Is joint replacement right for everyone? How does one know when it’s time and what should be expected after surgery?

These questions and more will be answered by Dr. Kolstad, a surgeon with privileges at MidState Medical Center and John Dempsey-UConn Medical Center.

Dr. Kolstad completed a residency program with the University of Connecticut and is certified with the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons as well as the Arthroscopy Board of North America. He is currently in practice with Comprehensive Orthopedics & Musculoskeletal Care, LLC and has served as chief of orthopedic surgery for MidState Medical Center. He is also a clinical associate with the University of Connecticut.
