Image This live Internet broadcast from El Dorado Hospital Tuesday, October 18, 2005, 3:00 PM Pacific Time (PT), 6pm ET (22:00 UTC)  features a Zimmer® MIS™ sub-vastus total knee replacement surgery.

The procedure uses a sub-vastus approach and requires an incision of only 9 to 14 cm, compared with 20 to 30 cm used in a standard knee replacement arthroplasty. Among the goals of this minimally invasive technique are shorter hospital stays, lower blood loss, faster rehabilitation 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. Orthopaedic surgeons interested in viewing this internet broadcast should speak to their local Zimmer Sales Representative or send your request to
