On Monday at 5:30pm, Milford Hospital, 300 Seaside Ave., will host the next in its series of “Dinner with the Doctor” programs. Join orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Michael Lim for dinner and discussion on Mako Robotic Arm Assisted Joint Replacement Surgery.
This latest advancement in orthopaedics allows surgeons to provide each patient with a personalized surgical experience based on his or her specific diagnosis and anatomy. According to a release from the hospital, Milford Hospital is the first hospital in Greater New Haven, and the only hospital on the I-95 corridor from Norwalk to Rhode Island, offering this advanced technology.
Lim treats patients of all ages that suffer from joint pain and conditions of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle. He is fellowship-trained in total joint replacement and revision of failed hip or knee surgeries. He has advanced training in cartilage restoration procedures and the preservation of joints to avoid surgical intervention. Lim specializes in minimally invasive, muscle sparing surgical procedures and enhanced recovery after surgery to improve patient outcomes.
A light, healthy supper will be served. The event is free, but registration is required. Space is limited and expected to fill rapidly. Call the Milford Hospital Community Education Department 203-876-4004 to reserve a spot.
