February 22, 2019 — Dr. Akhil Sastry, Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon and provider at Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, will speak at the 29th Annual Winter Conference for Contemporary Topics in Orthopedics. The conference takes place March 8th-10th at Sugarloaf Mountain Inn, Carrabassett Valley, ME.
Dr. Sastry was invited as a guest speaker to give his lecture, “Advances in Total Hip & Knee Replacement Surgery: The Robotic Revolution.”
Dr. Sastry has co-authored articles in publications and given numerous podium presentations throughout the United States on this topic. He was the first surgeon to perform with Stryker’s MAKO Robotic-Arm technology on the Seacoast and has collected research and data from numerous surgeries to show its positive outcomes.
Robotic-assisted surgery has become increasingly popular in recent years, allowing for more precise surgical techniques, extensive preoperative and patient-specific planning, and improved soft tissue protection.
Other physicians attending the conference will learn from the many lectures speaking about advances in technology, and be able to discuss surgical and medical treatments to improve patient outcomes.
Co-sponsored by St. Joseph Healthcare, Contemporary Topics in Orthopedics is a non-profit organization committed to providing learning opportunities and personal interaction with orthopedic colleagues and allied health professionals in mind, while also providing a forum for paper and research presentations by regional professionals.
