August Wellness presentation

The Latest in Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement Surgery will be presented by guest speaker Jose Alicea, M.D., a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon, on Wednesday, August 14, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. in the Madera Clubhouse Crystal Ballroom. Admission is free.

Joint replacement surgery can relieve pain and enable you to lead a fuller, more active life. Learn the newest advancements in total hip and knee replacement surgery and which procedures are right for you. After the presentation, get your questions answered by Dr. Alicea.

In his 19 years of practice, Dr. José Alicea has cared for patients of all ages and brings an empathetic ear by striving to understand what is important to the patient. He is fellowship trained in Sports Medicine and Total Joint Replacement; however, he practices general orthopedics including fracture care and back and neck problems.

Although Dr. Alicea relocated to Tucson from El Paso, Texas, he was a frequent visitor of our area, having biked the Tour de Tucson as well as attending swim meets. In his spare time he enjoys biking and scuba diving, but most of his free time is spent at his daughters’ competitive swim meets.

Dr. Alicea has office hours in Green Valley on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. This talk is presented by Northwest Medical Center. To RSVP, call 866-NW4WELL or 866-694-9355.
