- First endovascular surgical suite in the region where minimally-invasive carotid, aortic aneurysm, and peripheral artery surgery is done using an advanced imaging system.
- First Magellan robotic catheter system in the Midwest for endovascular procedures
- Stealth neurological ear, nose and throat system giving surgeons an improved three-dimensional view.
- A range of minimally-invasive spinal procedures including:
- MIS-spinal fixation
- Percutaneous fixation of bone fractures
Advances in Anesthesia
At Miami Valley Hospital, anesthesia is customized to each individual patient using the latest therapies. To help the anesthesiologist choose the most effective medications, a thorough discussion is done with the patient to identify what has worked in the past for pain relief. Through advanced monitoring, the anesthesiologist can better determine a level of anesthesia that is safe, yet effective. Another available option, nerve blocks, can provide some patients pain relief for up to several days.
Less Pain and Discomfort
Advanced anesthesia and less invasive surgical procedures mean patients are able to move about and recover more quickly. This results in a shorter hospital stay, shorter recovery time, and a quicker return to the patient’s normal routine.
