The 'O-arm S8 Navigation System', the most advanced 3-D surgical imaging equipment and navigation system for accurate and precision-based spine and neurosurgery was formally unveiled by the AMRI Hospitals in eastern India.
‘With the aid of the sophisticated system, the neurosurgeons can have clear and detailed visuals of the patient’s anatomy in real time. It paves the way to reduce and control the risk of tissue damage and infections that can occur after the procedure.
"The patients will have minimal incision surgery through this navigation system, which will reduce their hospital stay along with minimal blood loss and minimal post-operative pain, leading to quicker recovery time," said Sisir Das, Director and HOD of Neurosurgery of the hospital.
The sophisticated equipment enables clear visualisation and surgical navigation of every segment in the spine.
It helps a surgeon to have a detailed view of patient's anatomy in real time and also to navigate quite accurately through the delicate anatomy and critical structures in the spine.
"Patients who have to avail spinal and neurosurgery need not fear. With the new technology the risk of tissue damage is much more controlled and the patient has the maximum limited risk of after-operative infection," said Rupak Barua, Group CEO, AMRI Hospitals.
