Description: 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.
