At IASO Children's Hospital we always ensure that the health of children is in the best of hands and we continuously upgrade our medical technology to do so. This time, we are paving the way yet again, introducing the latest technology for even more well-rounded treatment of children. The StealthStation S8 neuronavigation system by Medtronic offers comprehensive solutions for managing conditions of the central nervous system, head and spine, offering maximum safety and intraoperative accuracy.
The new equipment can be used for minimally invasive surgery in cases of neurosurgery, orthopedic, otolaryngology and maxillofacial procedures. Its visual and electromagnetic navigation system makes it the ideal choice for performing even the finest surgical procedures on pediatric patients.
The main applications in neurosurgery involve removal of brain and spinal cord tumors, biopsies and catheter placements, as well as functional neurosurgery. It also offers the option of easy interconnection to external devices (e.g. ultrasound, CT or MRI system, microscope, etc.) and permits preoperative planning of the procedure and postoperative data storage. The real-time 3D imaging of the internal body organs during surgery maximizes the accuracy of identifying lesions and renders the procedure more effective.
The state-of-the-art neuronavigation system reduces:
- The duration of the procedure
- The surgical incisions
- The hospitalization time
- The likelihood of revision surgery
- The exposure to ionizing radiation
- The risks for the patient
At IASO Group, we consider the continuous upgrade of medical equipment necessary to ensure that we maintain the superior quality of the services we offer. The experienced medical staff, qualified nursing staff, modern facilities, cutting-edge technology and application of innovative diagnostic and treatment methods assist IASO Children's Hospital in offering leading and well-rounded medical care.
