iPod Surgery

An item that you can buy in most electronic stores is being used to perform surgery.

They're made for music and games, but Indianapolis surgeon Dr Tim Wilson is using an iPod touch to perform precise, state-of-the-art knee surgery.

Williams is an orthopedic surgeon with St. Francis Health and on Tuesday became the first in the state, and one of the first in the nation to perform a total knee replacement using special software on an iPod touch.

The high-tech tool, along with software developed by Brainlab, makes calculations in milliseconds, sending a 3-D image to the surgeon.

Surgeons in Indianapolis expect to do hundreds of the iPod procedures each year.
