Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery
It's not a medical drama. It's the real thing. Log on and watch
John Uribe, M.D., renowned orthopedic surgeon and medical director for
Doctors Hospital's Center for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, as he
performs shoulder rotator cuff repair surgery during a live webcast on Wednesday, June 18 at 4 p.m.
The webcast will be moderated by Tampa Bay Buccaneers team physician
and Doctors Hospital orthopedic surgeon John Zvijac, M.D., and
simultaneously translated in Spanish by Luis Vargas-Ortiz, M.D., sports
medicine educator for the Center for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine.
Tears of the rotator cuff tendons are among the most painful and
debilitating injuries of the shoulder. They can occur in athletes and
non-athletes, affecting people of all ages. Dr. Uribe, who is team
physician for the Florida Panthers and the University of Miami
athletics department, will perform the procedure as part of Baptist
Health South Florida's effort to broadcast various surgeries and
procedures on the web, giving viewers an insider's look at the OR.
