A minimally invasive computer assisted, total knee replacement surgery will be performed live over the Internet from Tampa General Hospital on April 18, 2007 at 4 p.m. ET. The procedure involves resurfacing the ends of the bones by making a small incision through which physicians place an implant that prevents bones from rubbing against each other. Because the minimally invasive procedure cuts less or no muscle, it gives the patient the potential for the fastest possible recovery.
Kenneth Gustke, M.D., Florida Orthopaedic Institute, founding member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, will perform the procedure that will be narrated by Steven Lyons, M.D., a surgeon at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute.
