We invite you to be part of something groundbreaking.  Working together, NYSSOS and MLMIC have designed a multi-modal, statewide educational opportunity to help reduce nerve injuries in joint replacement surgery.

By participating in the NYSSOS/MLMIC Patient Safety Program, participants will be able to identify risks associated with nerve injuries in joint replacement orthopedic surgical cases in the office, surgical and postoperative settings. 

For your convenience, events will be held across the state, via podcasts and also by webinar.  Please register today and save your seat!
