ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., (January 4, 2013) -- St. Anthony’s Hospital invites the community to two health seminars scheduled in January to learn more about surgical options for kidney cancer; and hip replacement and resurfacing. These health seminars are held at St. Anthony’s Hospital, Auditorium, 1200 Seventh Ave. N., St. Petersburg, FL.
Surgical Options for Kidney Cancer
Wednesday, January 16
Join urologist Eric Diner, MD, to learn more about the latest information on diagnostic testing, fluorescence technology and how it can aid in delicate kidney surgery and what minimally invasive and robotic surgical options are available for kidney cancer. Integrated fluorescence imaging actually illuminates an organ to better identify cancerous tissue which can result in conserving kidney function in patients diagnosed with kidney cancer.
Total Hip Replacement vs. Hip Resurfacing
Thursday, January 31
Orthopedic surgeon, John Pope, MD, will share information about a new surgical approach called hip resurfacing for patients with hip pain or experienced hip surgery, explain the difference between total joint replacement and resurfacing, and provide the latest diagnostic testing and treatment options available.
