The following was submitted by Valley Hospital.
The Valley Hospital is the first and only hospital in northern New Jersey to offer brain and spinal surgery with a state-of-the-art surgical imaging system, purchased through a generous $1 million grant from The Bolger Foundation.
The O-arm® Imaging System is a complete multi-dimensional surgical imaging system that provides detailed, multidimensional images and is optimized for use in spine, orthopaedic and trauma-related surgeries.
During back or spine surgery, precision is everything. O-arm® technology allows the surgeon to view clear, real-time images of the body during surgery. These images allow the surgeon to see precisely where to place instruments and to make the best decisions during the procedure. In addition, by integrating O-arm surgical imaging technology with Medtronic's StealthStation® surgical navigation systems, surgeons are able to perform less invasive procedures and confirm the precision of advanced surgical procedures before the patient leaves the OR.
“I know that the purchase of this new system will greatly enhance the surgical department at The Valley Hospital by enabling the hospital to offer the most advance equipment to patients, which of course only adds to Valley’s end results – outstanding inpatient and outpatient care,” said David Bolger, President of The Bolger Foundation.
