Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center is inviting the public to a “Meet The Robot” open house on Thursday, April 30 from 5-6:30 p.m. to introduce its newest and most advanced hip and knee replacement technology. The demonstration will take place in the lobby at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands, located at 9250 Pinecroft Drive.

Special guest and PGA Champions Tour member Fred Funk will share his GetAroundKnee™ knee replacement story with Meet the Robot attendees, who will also have a chance to participate in a drawing for two Honorary Observer passes and a VIP experience at the Insperity Invitational courtesy of Stryker on Saturday, May 2. The free event will also feature Kelly Blevins, MD, and Adam Freedhand, MD, orthopedic surgeons affiliated with Memorial Hermann who will discuss and demonstrate the robotic arm system’s capabilities.

Memorial Hermann The Woodlands and Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center both offer the Stryker Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology with the Mako Robot for specialized knee and hip replacement procedures.
