Live Total Knee Replacement Surgery with CAS System Viewable Online Wednesday

April 16, 2007 - On Wednesday, April 18 at 4PM EDT, Web viewers will have a unique opportunity to witness a "live" total knee replacement surgical procedure that employs a state-of-the-art Computer-Assisted Surgery (CAS) system from ORTHOsoft Inc. ORTHOsoft is an international company that develops and markets software applications, instruments and computerized medical systems that improve the accuracy of knee, hip and spine procedures.

The "live" Web cast will originate from Tampa General Hospital (Tampa, Florida). Kenneth Gustke, M.D., founding member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, will perform the total knee replacement surgery. The procedure will be narrated by Steven Lyons, M.D., surgeon at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute.

CAS, such as with ORTHOsoft Navitrack Navigation Systems, provides surgeons immediate instrument alignment and implant placement feedback. With CAS, hip, knee, and ankle replacement adjustments surgeons can have a perfect alignment rate up to 98 percent.

The prime benefit for patients when surgeons use CAS is shorter post- surgery recovery time.

To see the "live" procedure on the Internet visit http://www.gettingbackontrack.com and click on the Web cast link on the right side of the home page.

To see Web Cast you will need to have RealPlayer
