FREEHOLD, N.J., March 9, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Dr. Alan Nasar, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon at Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute (AOSMI), Freehold and Monroe townships, N.J., recently presented an interactive video program 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 orthopedic surgery and the lives of patients.
Dr. Nasar showed the students surgical videos of knee replacement with custom cutting guides, and cartilage transplantation of the knee. An informative question and answer session followed. This type of interactive presentation allows students to learn about orthopedics in an interesting and engaging format and also provides the opportunity for them to speak with a professional surgeon.
“I wanted to give the students concrete visualization of what they could contribute to society in the medical field,” said Dr. Nasar. “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 an orthopedic surgeon. Now I have an opportunity to blend both surgical procedures and technology for the benefit of my patients in Middlesex and Monmouth Counties.”
Dr. Nasar also discussed the topics of healthcare economics and the challenges and rewards of practicing medicine in 2020.
James Matera, Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs and Chief Medical Officer at CentraState Healthcare System, arranged for Dr. Nasar to speak to the Freehold students. For further information about AOSMI or to have Dr. Nasar speak to your group, contact him at 732-720-2555.
