Description:

In a live Internet webcast on A unique first hand surgical insight into the new high flexion primary knee & revison knee system
December 6, 2007, Lawrence S. Crossett, M.D., will perform two knee replacement surgeries using the LCS® Completeā„¢ from DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. This broadcast will take place at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Shady Side Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
At 3 PM EST, Dr. Crossett will perform a revision knee replacement surgery using a new revision implant, the LCS® Completeā„¢ System. This system helps diffuse loosening forces from the increased mechanical constraint and offers surgeons increased fixation through the use of metaphyseal sleeves on the femoral and tibial side.
At 6 PM EST, Dr. Crossett will perform a primary knee replacement surgery that will highlight the LCS® Complete RPS, a mobile-bearing knee implant that is designed to provide increased range of motion while sparing the patientā€™s natural, healthy bone tissue.
