Special equipment is required to film the surgery, including a jib-mounted camera. All of the equipment was sterilized before the patient was brought into the operating room.
On June 30, 2009, Christiana Care hosted a live webcast of two total-knee-replacement surgeries. The surgeries were performed by Dr. Alex Bodenstab and Dr. Steven Dellose, surgeons at Christiana Care's Center for Advanced Joint Replacement. The event also included a live chat on Twitter with nurses and former patients of the Center for Advanced Joint Replacement. Christiana Care partnered with the company OR Live, which specializes in surgical webcasts, to produce this educational event. You can watch the video here.
