Live Knee Replacement Surgery Online 

Knee pain and joint pain are two of the most common types of pain in the country, particularly in people over the age of 60.

There are more than 500,000 knee replacement surgeriesconducted each year according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.  In fact, in my family alone, there have been 4 knee replacement surgeries in the last six months.  Every knee replacement surgery was conducted on a woman in our family between the ages of 60-70.

Tomorrow Tuesday March 15, 2011, from 7AM to 12PM PST, Swedish Hospital in Seattle, WA will be conducting a knee replacement surgery on a 70 year old patient using robotic technology and BROADCASTING IT LIVE over the web.  In fact, people at home will be able to ask questions of the surgeons via the online chat and Twitter.  Amazing.
