Live Web Event Highlights Anterior Approach to Total Hip Replacement

WEST HARTFORD, CT--(Marketwire - Aug 22, 2011) - BroadcastMed, Inc.'s surgical web portal is proud to present a live web program from Santa Monica, CA. Dr. Joel M. Matta will perform a less invasive, alternative to traditional hip replacement surgery called the Anterior Approach. Using the Corail® Total Hip System and the PINNACLE® Acetabular Cup System from DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., as well as a specialized surgical table co-designed by Dr. Matta, he will perform the surgery at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, CA.

"The Anterior Approach allows surgeons to work between the muscles, without detaching them from the hip or thighbones," said Dr. Matta. "When these important muscles are left relatively undisturbed, patients may be able to freely bend their hip and bear full weight immediately following surgery, which may shorten recovery time."

Viewers can watch "Anterior Approach to Total Hip Replacement," Wednesday, August 24th at 1:00pm PT on
