Hope everyone is having lots of fun in the sun!  It’s this time of the year that we see many accidents due to summer outdoor activities .  Please give us a call if you require Orthopedic Care.

November: American Diabetes Month

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and with that, comes the all-to-familiar food coma.

Trying to avoid the mid-day nap and guilty food hangover?
Start your Thanksgiving off by snacking on healthy alternatives (carrots, hummus, dip, green beans) and limiting the adult beverages.

Thanksgiving is time to celebrate the family and friends you love: ROI wishes you the happiest and fullest holidays!

September: 8th Annual Total Joint Luncheon

On Sept. 4th, ROI held their 8th annual “Total Joint Luncheon.”  Every year ROI invites all of their patients who have had total joint replacements from mid-August of the previous year (2012.) Patients get a chance to share their experience and talk to the entire team of ROI staff that were involved with their surgery and rehabilitation; Surgeons, Physical therapy, and Hospital staff attend.

Patients send pictures in advance and ROI makes a slide show of things they are now able to do, after having a successful surgery.  This particular group of patients were amazing!  There were pictures of everything from bike riding to zip-lining!

In total there was around 180 guests that enjoyed a delicious catered lunch and performances by the Paradosi Ballet Company.

ROI friends and family all enjoyed the many laughs!

Thanks for helping to remind us of why we do what we do.
