Meditek Completes First 3D Minimally Invasive Integrated Operating Rooms Project in Canada(April 30, 2014)
Winnipeg, Manitoba (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Meditek, a Canadian leader in healthcare solutions, is excited to partner with Richmond Hospital, Canadas first healthcare provider to open integrated 3D minimally invasive operating rooms. Referred to as AVIOR 3D surgical suites (Advanced Visual Integration Operating Rooms), these new operating rooms combine 3D HD endoscopic technology from ConMed and Skytrons integration equipment, carrier booms and LED surgical lights to create a better, safer surgical environment for clinicians and patients.
Scott Samuels, Meditek project manager for the installation, comments that, This was a very exciting project for Meditek to be a part of, because these rooms feature revolutionary technology, and there isnt anything else like it in Canada.
The recent opening of the two AVIOR 3D surgical suites marks a new era for Richmond Hospital, which now serves as one of Canadas leading institutions for minimally invasive surgery. With the new technology, surgeons can make significantly smaller incisions while visualizing each case in 3D on special displays. These 3D images offer surgeons improved depth of field, spatial orientation, accuracy and tissue handling. For the patient, the integrated 3D technology promises less tissue trauma, blood loss and pain while dramatically reducing recovery time.
This latest advancement at Richmond Hospital improves our ability to attract and retain the best and the brightest surgeons to improve local healthcare, said Dr. Sharadh Sampath, Head of the Department of Surgery at Richmond Hospital. It also bolsters our status as a teaching hospital in the province to train the next generation of healthcare professionals using the latest, most advanced equipment.
The new AVIOR 3D surgical suites also utilize Skytron OR integration for streaming video and audio, allowing surgeons to perform on-demand consultations with other physicians located within the facility or around the world. Skytrons unique system allows authorized users to receive streamed video on any computer connected to the hospital network, making such consultations easier than with systems that only offer video conferencing. For teaching facilities, this streaming ability allows medical students and surgical residents to remotely participate in live learning opportunities.
