(7/16/13) Black River Memorial Hospital is hosting a community block party on August 5, starting at 5:30 p.m.
The Summer Hoopla is part of the hospital's campaign to increase awareness of its orthopaedic services. Orthopaedic Surgeon Todd Duellman will discuss his minimally invasive options for hip and knee replacements, including the anterior approach, which results in less pain than standard hip replacements. Dr. Duellman is one of few doctors in the state who can perform the procedure.
The Summer Hoopla will include:
· Door prizes
· Tailgate food
· Lawn games
· Hospital tours
· Hula hoop competitions
· A presentation by Dr. Duellman and opportunities to schedule an appointment with him
Pre-registration is required. Participants can register online at brmh.net or by calling
As part of the orthopaedic services campaign, hospital staff also created a hula hooping video, which can be seen at BRMH.net/hoopla. Reactions to the video can be posted on Twitter, using #dothehoopla.
