Date:6/20/2013

GULF BREEZE, Fla., June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Andrews Institute Spine Center and Baptist Hospital are now offering O-arm® technology, providing Andrews Institute neurosurgeon Brett Reichwage, M.D.,  the most advanced scanning technology available. The O-arm allows for precise placement of spinal instrumentation during surgery. Baptist Hospital is currently Pensacola's only hospital with this advanced surgical equipment.
