V. Keith Rhynes, MD, General Surgeon, will demonstrate this procedure, lead a panel discussion and interact with viewers by answering their questions during the broadcast. Dr. Rhynes is a graduate of Louisiana State University Medical Center in Shreveport where he also completed his residency in general surgery. He completed his Fellowship at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Dr. Rhynes is a Fellow of the American Board of Surgery.

Dr. Rhynes relates, "They usually can tell once they are awake from anesthesia that their hands are dry, that their armpits are dry.""My experience is that they're 100% satisfied."
