SPRINGFIELD, NJ - Originally scheduled for March 15, bad weather caused this event to be rescheduled to Monday, March 27.

Dr. Rieber will discuss the many treatment options available to address hip and knee pain up to and including MAKOplastay, a robotic join-replacement surgery that promises to help restore mobility with less pain and fewer complications than traditional surgical procedures.
