YouTube videos of lectures on knee surgery include “Introduction to Hip and Knee Replacement,” “Lecture on Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Resurfacing” and “Treating Knee Pain.” These lectures are conducted by orthopedic surgeons. YouTube also has a selection of graphic videos of knee surgeries.
“Introduction to Hip and Knee Replacement” is a community lecture by Dr. Nitin Goyal presented by Inova Health System. The lecture is aimed at people who are considering surgery, and the main objectives are to review the background of joint replacement, to review treatment alternatives and to introduce surgical concepts.
“Lecture on Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Resurfacing” is part of a live patient seminar. The lecturer is Andrew D. Pearle, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon at the Hospital for Special Surgery and Director, HSS Computer Assisted Surgery Center. Dr. Pearle uses “D?mo arigat?, Mr. Roboto,” which are lyrics from a song by rock band Styx, as a starting point for an introduction to surgical techniques for repairing damage caused by arthritis in the knee.
“Treating Knee Pain” is a recording of an Orthopaedic & Spine Center Community Lecture by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Robert Snyder. The lecture addresses surgical and non-surgical knee pain treatment options such as medication, injections, physical therapy and surgery. A video segment of Dr. Snyder performing surgery is included.
YouTube offers many other videos of lectures and actual knee surgeries, including “Total Knee Replacement by Brett R. Levine, MD, MS” and “Live Total Knee Replacement - Civil Hospital Karachi.”
