MSC Acquires State-of-the-Art High Definition Video Equipment For Minimally Invasive Surgery

Surgeons Perform Surgery With Best Technology Available Anywhere

MedStar Surgery Center recently acquired state-of-the-art high definition medical video technology to assist surgeons performing the most delicate surgical tasks. The new Arthrex ® video systems will be used in minimally invasive surgeries where the video systems provide visualization of the patients' anatomy.

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is much less traumatic than conventional open surgery, as the surgeon only requires very small incisions in the patient's body to successfully perform an operation. The surgeon uses an endoscope to allow the anatomy and operation to be viewed on a video monitor. MIS results in faster recovery times and reduced procedural costs.

The high definition feature will allow the surgeon to more easily identify anatomical structures. Additionally, the high definition video generates a greater depth of view, or a 3-D effect as some surgeons have termed it, which allows the surgeon to perform the delicate instrument maneuvers more naturally and quickly. These features improve the efficiency of the operative team and reduce the time that the patient must remain under anesthesia.

MedStar Surgery Center is committed to providing the community with the highest level of health care using state of-the-art medical technology. This advanced technology provides our patients with improved procedural efficiency, and reduces overall operative costs. These benefits are passed on to our patients.
