OHOW Updates Surgical Technology: Enhancing Precision and Improving Outcomes

In the ever-evolving landscape of medical technology, advancements continue to revolutionize surgery performance. At Orthopaedic Hospital of Wisconsin, our Three Critical Success Factors: Quality, Patient Satisfaction, and Staff Satisfaction, are at the core of everything we do, including implementing the latest technological advancements that ultimately lead to improved patient outcomes 

This year, we have embraced technological improvements by introducing the Smith and Nephew 4k Intellio Towers to our hospital. These towers include all the technology and equipment for any arthroscopic procedure the hospital performs. This equipment includes: 4k cameras, 4k image management boxes, 4k monitors, radio frequency generators, irrigation pumps for visualization, and arthroscopic shavers for bone and tissue resection.    

Enhancing Arthroscopic Procedures   

Arthroscopy, a minimally invasive surgical technique, is used to visualize, diagnose, and treat a wide range of joint problems. Whether it’s ankle arthroscopy, shoulder arthroscopy, or any procedure in between, the Smith and Nephew 4k Intellio Towers deliver unparalleled precision and clarity.  

At the heart of this improvement lies the advancement in resolution technology. Unlike its predecessors with HD resolution, the new 4k cameras offer a high level of detail and accuracy, providing surgeons with crystal-clear visibility during procedures. Whether it’s the removal of bone fragments, tissue resection, or intricate repair work, heightened clarity translates into enhanced precision and accuracy.  

The implications of this upgrade are profound. With improved visibility, surgeons can identify and address issues with even greater precision, resulting in more effective treatments and, ultimately, better patient outcomes.   

Improvements Beyond the Operating Room  

The benefits of updated technology extend beyond the operating room. The compact design of the new towers not only optimizes space utilization but also enhances the overall user experience. From nurses coordinating equipment to surgeons navigating through procedures, the user-friendly interface of our new technology ensures seamless operation, streamlining workflow, and enhancing efficiency for all. 

This improved technology marks a significant milestone in arthroscopic surgery. By leveraging cutting-edge technology to enhance resolution and user experience, these video towers elevate the standards of care.  

Embracing Excellence in Modern Healthcare

As we embrace this new era of precision medicine, it’s essential to recognize the transformative impact of innovations in technology. With enhanced visibility, streamlined workflows, and improved patient outcomes, these advancements highlight OHOW’s pursuit of excellence in modern healthcare.
