Presbyterian Hospital, Albuquerque, NM will feature a Zimmer MIS Anterolateral Hip Procedure in a live webcat at 4:00 PM MT / 6:00 PM ET (22:00 UTC) at http://www.or-live.com/zimmer/1439
The procedure is a muscle sparing approach to total hip arthroplasty. The 6-10 cm incision courses between the glutei and the tensor fascia lata muscles directly to the hip capsule. This intermuscular interval through a small incision provides good exposure for total hip replacement and preserves muscle integrity so that rehabilitation may be rapid and the posterior capsule can remain intact, easing concerns about posterior dislocation. Among the goals of this minimally invasive technique are shorter hospital stays, lower blood loss, and a more cosmetically appealing surgical scar.

Surgeons are able to view the procedure at select locations throughout the world. There will also be interactive commentary from faculty surgeons during the broadcast.

This program is part of an ongoing effort to provide convenient, innovative educational opportunities to orthopaedic surgeons worldwide and is intended to help orthopaedic surgeons enhance their skills to build confidence in providing the best orthopaedic care possible for their patients. Registration is required: Orthopaedic surgeons interested in viewing this internet broadcast should speak to their local Zimmer Sales Representative or send your request to .

Richard E. White, Jr., MD, Orthopaedic Surgeon and Medical Director, New Mexico Center for Joint Replacement Surgery, in Albuquerque, New Mexico performs the surgery at Presbyterian Hospital.

Louis M. Kwong, MD, Vice Chairman, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Harbor/UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California moderates the surgery.

This activity is sponsored by The Zimmer Institute. This activity does not offer CME credit.
