Inova Loudoun Hositpal in Leesburg is offering two upcoming installments of its “Ask the Expert” lecture series. On Mar. 7, Board-certified OB/GYN Kim Freeman will discus ways women over age 35 can optimize their health and their baby’s during pregnancy. On Mar. 15, orthopedic surgeon Matthew Gavin will discuss the latest advances in computer-navigated and robotic-assisted knee replacements.
Freeman’s lecture will discuss environmental reproductive toxins, the most current prenatal genetic testing available and the benefits and risks of technologically advanced testing during pregnancy in the later reproductive years. It will also help attendees learn when they and their partner should seek medical evaluation for infertility. Spouses and/or partners are encouraged to attend.
On Mar. 15, Gavin’s lecture will go over how robotic-assisted partial knee replacements (MAKOplasty) can help patients to improve mobility, minimize pain and enjoy a more active lifestyle.
Both lectures will take place at the hospital’s Conference Room A&B near the south entrance. Free on-sight and valet parking is available. Participation is free for both lectures, but the hospital asks attendees to register ahead of time.
