Aurora, CO August 13, 2021 –(PR.com)– As a leader in cardiac and vascular care, The Medical Center of Aurora now features a new hybrid OR suite that includes a state-of-the-art image guided therapeutic system used for minimally invasive procedures requiring x-ray or CT navigation. This is only the second install of this system in the world.
“The Medical Center of Aurora’s surgical suite expansion is indicative of our promise to deliver nationally recognized healthcare to our community,” says Ryan Simpson, Chief Executive Officer. “With this addition, we are able to provide even more patients with the lifesaving flexibility that hybrid operating rooms offer.”
Using highly advanced imaging devices and protocols, physicians provide patients with the least invasive surgeries possible in hybrid operating rooms, while offering the flexibility of traditional procedures when necessary to complement the overall care. The new Allia image guidance system enables physicians to evaluate, treat, and assess the results of minimally invasive procedures, to treat more complex medical conditions, and still have the ability to complement the treatments with traditional open techniques.
Though used primarily for blood vessel and heart procedures, trauma, neurosurgery and orthopedic patients requiring advanced image guidance can also be served in the new hybrid operating rooms.
With its laser-guided mobile robotic table, this new technology enables patients to be precisely positioned for the minimally invasive techniques that have put The Medical Center of Aurora at the forefront of advancing heart and vascular health.
The system is ergonomic and easy to use since it can be personalized for the physician’s clinical needs, even in the most complex working positions.
“The field of vascular surgery continues to evolve and what we will do in the future will be much different than traditional open repair,” says vascular surgeon, Dr. Omid Jaezeri. “The advanced image guided therapeutics allowed by the new system along with the development of innovative and minimally invasive techniques to treat conditions such as complex aortic aneurysms can significantly improve patient outcomes by shortening patient recovery time, decreasing hospital length of stay, and streamlining care delivery.”
The Allia system offers AI-driven imaging chain that helps reduce radiation dose and contrast dye for interventional procedures. “A digital hub of software packages gives physicians the clinical tools we need to plan, guide, and assess procedures to increase diagnostic accuracy and make more informed decisions to improve the effectiveness of the treatments we deliver to patients,” says vascular surgeon, Dr. Danielle Doucet.
The combination of advanced imaging technology with precision means more diagnostic capabilities and added patient comfort with robust software that can simplify complex procedures to optimize outcomes for patients and providers.
