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

Michael Rieber, MD, a board certified orthopedic surgeon with the Joint Institute at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, will give a presentation about current developments in the treatment of knee and hip pain at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 27 at the Springfield Free Public Library. 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.

Dr. Rieber is a multiyear New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor, most recently for 2016.  He is a graduate of New York Medical College and the founder and director of the Joint Institute at Saint Barnabas Medical Center.  He also heads the Barnabas Health Sports and Physical Medicine Institute.  From his website, “Dr. Rieber is committed to providing state-of-the-art care, from stem cells to robotic surgery, and his successful outcomes speak for themselves.”

This program is free and open to all members of the general public.  Because seating is limited, registration is requested and can be done by calling (973) 322-9908 or by visiting barnabashealth.org/sbmcevents.
