ORLive Presents: Computer-Assisted Total Knee Replacement

Live Webcast: From Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center: May 2, 2008 at 12:00 PM EDT (16:00 UTC)

WINSTON-SALEM, NC–( EMWNews – April 1, 2008) – Jason E. Lang, M.D., an orthopaedic

surgeon at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, will perform a computer-assisted

total knee replacement that begins at 12 Noon, Friday, May 2. William

G. Ward Sr., M.D., an orthopaedic surgeon who also

performs joint

replacements, will narrate the procedure and take questions from

Internet viewers. For more information about this live webcast, please go

Dr. Lang relates, “We’re taking that small slice of bone off the ends of

each of the long bones and we’re capping that with metal, and then putting

a piece of plastic in between. So instead of rubbing bone on bone, you end

up rubbing metal on plastic, which has no nerve endings, and thus,

shouldn’t hurt them anymore.”

Lang’s areas of expertise include partial and total knee and hip replacement,

computer-assisted total joint surgery, and revision surgery of the hips and

knees. Lang has made presentations at national meetings and been published

in national journals.

“The computer allows me to, during surgery, be confident that I’ve done

everything I can to give this implant and this patient the best chance to

have the knee last them for a very very

long time.”
