One of the many services offered by O’Neill Healthcare Bay Village is to provide health education programs to the community. We do this by hosting many events throughout the year, both on our campus and at the local senior centers. 

Last month our director of physical therapy, Kris Maiorca, presented a program on achieving positive outcomes from hip and knee replacement. The program was held the Westlake Center for Community Services, to an audience of over 50 seniors. 

While enjoying the lunch prepared by the O’Neill Healthcare dining staff, those in attendance were educated about how to prepare for surgery, different surgical methods, what to expect after surgery, and the therapy options available to ensure the best outcome. A very interactive Q&A session ended the program.
