St. Vincent Charity Medical Center is giving viewers the opportunity to go inside the operating room to watch a live surgery on November 19. For the first time in Northeast Ohio, participants will be able to watch and interact via live video stream, Twitter and Instagram with the surgical team as they perform a total knee replacement.

The Plain Dealer and Cleveland.com have been working with St. Vincent Charity on the series “New Knee, New Life” following one patient’s journey through knee replacement surgery and recovery. The series began on October 25 on Cleveland.com with an introduction to the patient, John Favaloro, and his story that led him to get a knee replacement with Dr. Lou Keppler, Co-Director of the Spine and Orthopedic Institute at St. Vincent Charity.

The surgery will take place at 10:30 a.m. on November 19. Through social media accounts and comments on the live stream, interested viewers will be able to ask questions and see exactly happens during the procedure. Live tweets will be sent by Cleveland.com’s official Twitter account (@clevelanddotcom) and live stream video will be available on the home page of Cleveland.com. Tweets, photos and short videos can be viewed on St. Vincent Charity’s Twitter (@StVincentCMC) and Instagram (@StVincentCharity) accounts. Follow the conversation by using the hashtag #StVKnee.
