“What a wonderful way to learn more about the advances in technology for total knee replacements today,” said Karen Stolk, who attended the seminar hosted by an AOSMI orthopedic surgeon. “Dr. Banzon was informative and thorough, and I walked away from the discussion knowing so much about the appropriate next steps for my knee treatment and care.”
