This next generation image guided therapy platform encourages an increased number of procedures, for more patients, carried out consistently and efficiently with fewer preparation errors. Its innovative user experience helps successfully handle heavy caseloads and is fine-tuned so clinicians can provide exceptional patient care, swiftly and reliably, regardless of which procedure is being performed.
“In previous operations you might have been looking at two, three, or four months recovery from an aortic aneurysm repair,” said Dr. Richard Harris, Head of Vascular Surgery at Sydney Adventist Hospital in Sydney, Australia. “Now we can get this patient home in two days and they are really feeling quite normal after two or three weeks.”
As use of hybrid operating rooms gain in popularity, patients who undergo minimally invasive procedures can recover faster. Assisted by the latest in live image guidance, surgeons are now able to achieve desired results quickly and with less trauma.
“We aim to provide integrated solutions that advance minimally invasive procedures by helping healthcare providers to decide, guide, treat and confirm the right therapy for the right patient at the point of care,” said Matt Moran, Managing Director, Philips Australia and New Zealand. “By making therapy more efficient, more appropriate and more personal, we can contribute to improving the quality and efficiency of healthcare.”
Patients and surgeons are seeing the extensive benefits of hybrid ORs, which enable health care professionals to provide superior patient care, easily and confidently perform procedures, whilst also increasing efficiency. Philips Azurion is helping clinicians at Sydney Adventist Hospital to have unique opportunities to streamline procedures and enjoy a more optimised workflow.
“I’ve been involved in the design of hybrid ORs over the last few years and it was wonderful to actually have all of those experiences come together to help build this one,” said Dr. Harris, Head of Vascular Surgery at Sydney Adventist Hospital.
