MLB Hall-of-Famer, Johnny Bench, Catches Attention with New Hip Replacement Surgery Technique

Bench is Keynote Speaker at Free Arthritis and Joint Pain Seminar in Costa Mesa

Orthopedic Surgeon, Christopher Ninh, M.D., Joins Bench to Discuss Innovative, Minimally-Invasive Procedures for Total Joint Replacement Surgery

COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Major League Baseball Hall-of-Fame catcher, Johnny Bench, will be the keynote speaker at a free seminar, sharing his personal experience with joint pain and his return to living a normal, active life after hip replacement surgeries. Bench will introduce featured speaker, Orthopedic Medical Director of Chapman Orthopedic Institute, Christopher Ninh, M. D. The event will take place October 9 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm at the Westin at South Coast Plaza, 686 Anton Boulevard in Costa Mesa and includes a complimentary dinner, as well as complimentary valet parking.

Renowned for his innovative, minimally-invasive hip and knee replacement surgeries, Dr. Ninh is a Board-Certified, sports-trained, orthopedic surgeon. Other speakers include Grant Robicheaux, M.D. and Perry Secor, M.D., also from the Chapman Orthopedic Institute. These prominent total joint replacement specialists will be discussing osteoarthritis; arthritis of the hip, knee and shoulder; non-surgical alternatives for joint pain relief; and the latest and most advanced, surgical techniques in joint replacement surgery.

Earlier that afternoon, prior to the seminar, Bench and Dr. Ninh will visit with a few patients at Chapman Hospital, who literally will have just had total joint replacement surgery to their knees or hips by Dr. Ninh. Bench will compare notes with these patients regarding how much quicker they will recover, with much less pain and discomfort than he suffered with his traditional hip surgeries, previously.

Dr. Ninh’s goal of the seminar is to educate patients requiring these types of surgeries of the options available to them, so they will be familiar with the latest, minimally-invasive techniques, before deciding. These advanced procedures result in less cutting, less blood loss and less pain and a much faster recovery, as Johnny Bench and Dr. Ninh will be talking about at the seminar.

Dr. Ninh says, "Whether you're suffering from an injury or arthritis, there's no need to put off any type of joint replacement surgery, as the latest surgical techniques we perform, allow patients to get back to their normal, active way of life much faster than ever before and with much less pain. I hope anyone considering these types of surgery will join us at our free seminar and learn about all of the options open to them. Also, where else would you have a chance to meet Johnny Bench in person?"

Last year, a similar seminar the doctors held attracted over 400 guests. In addition to Chapman Orthopedic Institute, this event is also sponsored by the Arthritis Foundation and Stryker.

People interested in attending this valuable and informative, free seminar must register in advance by calling (714) 432-9990. For more information about Dr. Ninh, please visit
