Self Regional Healthcare Becomes First in the Southeast to Treat Spine Patients Using Advanced Integrated Operating Room Technology From Brainlab

WESTCHESTER, Ill., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Surgeons at Self Regional Healthcare's South Carolina Spine Center in Greenwood, SC are now treating patients with a variety of spinal conditions in its new advanced surgical operating room (OR) featuring Brainsuite® iCT from Brainlab.

Already recognized by leading health care ratings organization HealthGrades as a five-star rated spine program, Self Regional continues its commitment to advanced spinal care by becoming the first institution in the Southeast to use this highly advanced OR technology.

Neurosurgeons Dr. Michael Kilburn and Dr. Sumeer Lal have treated more than 30 patients using Brainsuite iCT since the advanced OR opened on July 19. The first patient was experiencing severe and radiating lower back pain. After the surgeon performed a lumbar spinal fusion involving the L5 S1, the patient was able to return home after a brief hospital stay and is well on their way to a full recovery.

"Integrating navigation with diagnostic quality intra-operative images offers tremendous benefit to our patients," noted Dr. Lal. "We can perform with a higher level of accuracy in terms of instrument placement, supported by the ability to check that a surgical outcome has been achieved prior to concluding the procedure. This advanced technology has taken our OR to the next level."

Brainsuite iCT is a digitally integrated OR that combines image-guided surgery (IGS), with a multi-slice intra-operative computed tomography scanner (iCT) and comprehensive OR data management. The CT travels on rails over the OR table, providing high-quality intra-operative scanning without waking the patient from anesthesia. It drives access to real-time imaging and enriched patient data that surgeons can use to make timely and informed decisions, as well as obtain pre-closure verification of results. Brainsuite iCT can be used for neuro, spine, ENT, cranio-maxillo-facial, trauma and orthopedic surgeries.

With the digital data management system Brainsuite® Net, patient data from the hospital's Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) is accessible in the OR. Automatic Image Registration from Brainlab supports instant patient registration of intra-operative images without the need for fiducial markers or landmark recognition for seamless and time-saving navigation for surgeons. The VectorVision® sky navigation platform displays patient data collected during surgery and is equipped with two infrared cameras that verify the patient's position in the OR.

"Self Regional Healthcare had a strong vision for integrating intra-operative imaging and advanced data management into its spine center. We are proud they chose to collaborate with Brainlab to make that vision a reality for their patients," said Cameron Georges, Director, Brainlab Inc.
