Dr. Alan Nasar, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon at AOSMI (Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute), Freehold and Monroe townships, N.J., recently presented an interactive video program for Career Day to senior students enrolled in the Medical Science Program at Freehold Borough High School. Dr. Nasar tied together the use of innovation and technology with how both are being used to improve surgery and the lives of patients.
A question and answer session followed after Dr. Nasar showed the students surgical videos of hip arthroscopy, knee replacement with custom cutting guide, and cartilage transplantation of the knee.
Dr. Nasar said, “I wanted to give the students concrete visualization of what they could contribute to society in the medical field. I still remember the excitement I felt when I was introduced to biotechnology in engineering school. The first time I sat in on a surgery, I knew I wanted to become orthopedic surgeon. Now I have an opportunity to blend both surgical procedures and technology for the benefit of my patients.”
Brian Mason, head of the physical therapy department at CentraState Medical Center, arranged for Dr. Nasar to speak to the Freehold students. For further information or to have Dr. Nasar speak to your group, contact him at 732-720-2555.
