Alvarado Hospital is hosting a dinner seminar for the San Diegans suffering from knee pain. If knee pain is keeping you from enjoying your life, join us for dinner at Gordon Biersch Restaurant on Thursday, May 25, at 6 p.m. in Mission Valley.

Dr. James Bates, medical director of the Advanced Joint Institute at Alvarado Hospital, will explain the causes and latest solutions to your knee pain – whether arthritis-, sports-, exercise- or other injury-related cause.

As a leader in orthopedics, Alvarado is recognized as the only hospital in the state of California to be ranked among America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Orthopedic and Spine Surgery four years in a row (Healthgrades, 2014-2017). In addition, Alvarado is the only hospital in the city of San Diego to receive the 2017 Patient Safety Excellence Award by Healthgrades (2015-2017). If you are considering knee surgery, this recognition is important in terms of safety and outcomes.

Join us for a free dinner while you learn about the common causes of knee pain, non-surgical solutions, and the latest advances in knee surgery, including robotics-assisted knee replacement. This advanced technology combines a robot’s expertise with a surgeon’s skill for the minimally invasive procedures to alleviate your painful knee.

Seating is very limited, sign up online or call (800) 258-2723 by May 22, 2017. If you have questions, e-mail us.
