Live Webcast: November 27, 2007 at 5:00 PM EST (22:00 UTC) From Bon Secours St. Francis Health System, Greenville, South Carolina

GREENVILLE, SC--(Marketwire - November 6, 2007) - On Tuesday, November 27 at 5:00 pm EST, surgeons at Bon Secours St. Francis Health System in Greenville, South Carolina, will perform a gender specific knee replacement during a live internet broadcast on Bill DeVault, MD, will perform the procedure, and Daniel E. Lee, MD, will moderate the hour-long webcast. A gender specific knee replacement is a special type of joint replacement that is shaped to match the specific contours of a woman's anatomy.

Dr. DeVault relates, "My goal after a joint replacement is to have a person after they have healed up well and re-strengthen well, to forget they have it; so if they are able they can go ahead and do the activities they want to do without even thinking about their knee."

Viewers will have the opportunity to e-mail questions to the doctors during the gender knee replacement surgery.
