The ability to take high definition images during surgery easily, quickly, and safely leads to the best possible outcomes for your patient. While many area referral practices have fluoroscopy units that can be used in surgery, their usefulness is very limited due to bulky size and radiation exposure concerns.
Our new Mini Orthopedic C-arm digital fluoroscopic X-ray is compact and mobile, with digital technology that minimizes radiation exposure ensuring ease of use and staff and patient safety, allowing our surgeons to:
- Perform non-invasive fracture repairs that greatly reduce infection risk and leave the initial clot at the fracture site to improve the bone healing process.
- Precisely place pins in anatomic regions that present high risks of complications.
- Capture and record radiographic video for blood flow studies, dynamic function studies (collapsing trachea, swallowing), and stent placement.
- Reduce discomfort.
The shape of the C-arm allows movement horizontally, vertically and around the swivel axes, so that X-ray images of the patient can be produced from almost any angle. The images are then displayed on the C-arm monitor so our surgeon can verify the position of implants and instruments at any time.
Having the Mini Orthopedic C-arm at VSS means your patients are receiving the best possible placement of implants and instruments, and the most minimally invasive surgery possible. Contact us for more information at 949.936.0055.
