Advanced Technology at Nash UNC Health Care
When you choose Nash UNC Health Care for surgical services, you gain access to the latest technology for procedures in neurosurgery, sinus surgery, and breast biopsies. Your surgeons use these advanced tools to perform more efficient surgeries for a better health outcome.
Image Guided Precise Neurosurgery
Your surgeon may use the StealthStation™ S8 surgical navigation system that combines an advanced computer with imaging technology to help your surgeries be more effective and thorough. It gives your surgeons a three-dimensional view inside your body and pinpoints the exact position of their surgical instruments. When your surgeon uses this technology for your procedure, you may benefit from safer operation.
3D Imaging System for Better Outcomes
The Medtronic O-Arm system is an intraoperative imaging device (used during surgical operations). It allows your doctor to scan your body and get a 3D, 360-degree view while operating. This means your surgeon can perform faster, more precise procedures and help improve your outcome in spinal and cranial surgeries.
SAVI SCOUT® Breast Localization
The SAVI SCOUT is a wire-free radar localization system that implants a tiny marker at the tumor site instead of using a needle and wire on the day of lumpectomy. This allows your breast surgeon to operate at a higher level of accuracy to decrease your time in the hospital. Keep more of your healthy breast tissue and better maintain the shape of your breasts when your surgeon uses SAVI SCOUT.
C-Arm Table for Urology Procedures
For urological X-ray procedures, advanced imaging tables help your doctor better diagnose and treat your urinary health issues. You’ll undergo a more comfortable X-ray right on your hospital bed without the need for a separate appointment to scan your body.
