In addition, he spoke about the surgical procedures and risks and complications. He encouraged choosing a rehab center to benefit from extensive rehabilitation services and to give the patient the best chance at a successful recovery.

Ruth Kremer, of Versailles, won the door prize, a free entree at Michael Anthony’s at the Inn.
