For the millions of people on Twitter who have desperately wanted a social media blow-by-blow of a low anterior resection on a patient with colorectal cancer, you're just not going to believe your luck.

On August 10 at 1 PM EST Georgia surgeons at Southern Regional Health System will be making your dreams come true.

Since doctors will be performing the procedure using a new device called the ColonRing, it's easy to get the sense that this is a promotional stunt.
