Dr. Robert T. Deveney, Total Joint Specialist, will speak about Total Joint Replacement, diagnosis, treatment and recovery on September 18 at 11 am, at the Mattatuck Senior Center in Waterbury, CT.  The presentation focuses on state of the art techniques that are now used to offer patients a quicker return to functional living and a higher level of activity than in the past.  With minimally invasive procedures, patients experience less trauma and easier recovery. As is widely recognized, Danbury Orthopedics' Board Certified, fellowship trained surgeons are known for their expertise in this area. They perform more joint replacement surgeries than any other practice in northern Fairfield County and are highly experienced with the full range of implants and surgical techniques.

Dr. Deveney will discuss appropriate treatment for patients of all ages.  Contrary to general thinking, more and more younger people are opting for replacement surgery, as the life expectancy of today's implants is often 20 years or more. Age is no longer a factor in the decision to go forward with surgery. Please attend this informative session and have your questions answered by one of our top specialists.

When?  11:00 am, on September 18th
Where?  Mattatuck Senior Center, 117 Southmayd Road, Waterbury, CT 06705
Open to the public.
