United Regional unveils innovative spinal surgery technology

The United Regional Neurosurgery team in Wichita Falls, Texas has recently introduced a new spine surgery technology that promises to be minimally invasive. This cutting-edge technology is made up of two components: the StealthStation surgical navigation and the O-Arm surgical imaging system, which work together to improve precision and safety during surgeries.

Dr. Richard Kern, a neurosurgeon at United Regional, explains how the StealthStation navigation allows for a minimally invasive approach by using smaller incisions, potentially resulting in less blood loss and a shorter hospital stay. With this new technology, the surgical team can take on more complex cases that were previously too difficult due to its ability to provide 3-D imagery that improves accuracy during surgery, allowing for more precise implant placement compared to traditional methods.

Meanwhile, the O-Arm provides real-time intraoperative imaging that shows the patient’s anatomy during the procedure, helping the surgical team make informed decisions. This integration of technologies allows for a safer and more efficient approach to spine surgery procedures.

Dr. Sven Hochheimer, another neurosurgeon at United Regional, is proud of the hospital’s commitment to investing in technologies that enhance patient care. These advancements in spine surgery technology place United Regional at the forefront of innovation in the field.
