CHICAGO, April 15 /PRNewswire/ --

-- Unveiling of Miracle Manny -- a life-sized skeleton outfitted with 73

actual orthopaedic devices used by doctors today to successfully treat

many bone or joint problems. Manny dramatically demonstrates medical

advances since the 1930's, when amputation or fusion were standard

procedures.

-- Manny's creator, Dr. Jim Hamilton, Chairman of Orthopaedic Surgery at the

University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, will show how

aides like the hubcap plate, dynamic hip screw, wrist jack and rib-to-rib

plate help doctors today save limbs and restore function.

-- Miracle Manny greets visitors to eMotion Pictures: An Exhibition of

Orthopaedics in Art, where each work is linked to the pain, despair,

healing and hope of an orthopaedic condition. This unique juried

exhibition showcases art by over 100 doctors and patients from around the

globe.

-- Joining Dr. Hamilton will be several other artists, including Ario, an

Iranian immigrant now living in Chicago -- exhibiting haunting drawings

of soldiers wounded in Iraq -- and Jon Wos, an Oshkosh, WI artist whose

genetic brittle bone condition has inspired prize-winning glass

sculptural self- portraits of his lifetime of fractures and surgeries.

-- eMotion Pictures is free and open to the public, April 17 through July

20, 2008. It is sponsored by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons

(AAOS) to bridge the gap between doctors and patients and the public.
