Riverview Health is continuing its trend of upgrading and updating.
The county health system recently announced its purchase of ExcelsiusGPS, new equipment that assists surgeons by providing a real-time visualization to spine implant placements.
Riverview officials said the equipment is unique in that it takes into account each patient’s anatomy to make spine surgeries as precise as possible.
“We’re committed to providing the highest quality care for our patients, which includes investing in the latest technologies,” said Seth Warren, president and CEO of Riverview Health. “We’re excited about the new opportunities ExcelsiusGPS brings to the field of minimally invasive spine surgery, robotics and navigation.”
The ExcelsiusGPS technology was designed to increase safety and accuracy in the operating room, but it also has other features like a reduced amount of radiation exposure for the patient, surgeons and staff. Because it facilitates minimally invasive procedures, there may be less blood loss and less muscle damage during a surgery, which could then lead to a faster recovery.
