Stephen DeBiasi, chief executive officer at OrthoWilmington, PA, shares with others on WilmingtonBiz.com the benefits of supporting charitable causes and educational programs in our community. Supporting charitable causes and educational programs in our community is not only the right thing to do; it’s a very smart business move.
When the corporate world does its part to build and maintain a thriving environment, employee recruitment and retention are positively affected. We all want to live in a region that offers quality educational options, excellent health and wellness programs, exciting athletic opportunities for participants and spectators, an active arts scene, and an overall sense of caring for those in need. If the business community does not support these vital components of a desirable region, we will find ourselves losing new enterprises and top-level talent to communities that do. We don’t hear much about private medical groups, so I thought I would share a bit about OrthoWilmington’s involvement. To read the complete article, please click here.
When non surgical treatment options for knee arthritis do not provide lasting relief, advances in technique and technology have made available new, less invasive surgical treatment options for knee pain. Advances in the anesthesia used can lessen post operative pain and speed return to activity. Experienced knee surgeons now perform replacement procedures using a less invasive technique which in turn results in less blood loss and muscle interruption which can improve recovery times.
In cases where arthritis is limited to one location, a partial knee replacement procedure may be an option.
Dr. Frueh has performed 700-800 knee and hip surgeries, over one-third of the procedures have been performed on an outpatient basis which means patients are able to go home the same day as their surgery to recover in comfort of their own home.
